In Seismic Shift, YouTube To Make All Of Its Original Programming Available For Free

Come 2020, the video giant will retreat from its push into premium scripted series. At the same time, YouTube is planning to make all future originals free for its 2 billion monthly users, supported by ads — and thus virtually abandoning the YouTube Premium paywall, which is priced at $12 per month. YouTube first launched its premium service, initially dubbed YouTube Red, back in Oct. 2015. – Geoff Weiss, Tubefilter
