After having their “red carpet premiere”, the first four Youtube Red Originals are now available for subscribers. For those who aren’t yet convinced they should pay $9.99 a month for special access, you can actually watch short previews of these films, or get the one-month free trial subscription. But more than these four films, YouTube has promised even more original materials, from documentaries to full-length films, to original series, which can all be accessed through the YouTube Red subscription.
The first four originals which are now available for viewing are: A Trip to Unicorn Island, a full-length movie about the journey of YouTube star Lilly Singh; Lazer Team, a full-length action comedy about four small-town losers trying to save the earth from an alien invasion; Scare PewDiePie, a reality adventure series starring the gaming sensation PewDiePie; and Dance Camp, a film about the power of dance and friendships.
Later this year, they will be releasing two more brand new projects. The first one is a still untitled Gigi Gorgeous Project, which will explore the life of this groundbreaking transgender woman and what it means to be one in this “uncensored new media world”. The other one is Foursome, an original series about an undateable sophomore girl and her three best friends navigating their way through high school. More series will be coming up, including Prank Academy, Fight of the Living Dead, a yet untitled 360 Game Theory (featuring virtual reality experiences of course).
YouTube Red doesn’t just allow you to watch all these original series, but also removes ads from your regular YouTube viewing experience. You also get an automatic ad-free subscription to Google Play Music. All of that will just cost you $9.99 a month.
