YouTube to Make New Originals Available for Free, Ad-Supported Viewing With ‘Single Slate’ Strategy

YouTube has concluded that its investments in original programming should have a home on the free, ad-supported side — not just tucked behind a paywall.

In a shift in strategy, the Google-owned video platform said that starting next year it will move to make all of its new original programming available for free for anyone to watch. With the change, YouTube is moving toward more mainstream celebrity-driven and creator-based reality fare, while it will continue to greenlight scripted productions.

Until now, YouTube Originals have mainly been available on its YouTube Premium subscription service, although YouTube also has expanded the shows and movies it makes available on an ad-supported basis.

The company calls the new YouTube Originals strategy its “Single Slate,” which will combine ad-supported and subscription VOD programming initiatives. By 2020, YouTube’s original shows and movies will be available in free windows for all YouTube users. In the near term, some original productions will remain behind the paywall, including next year’s season 2 of “Cobra Kai,” an offshoot of the “Karate Kid” movies.

The move will make YouTube Originals available to the platform’s nearly 2 billion users worldwide. That, according to YouTube, will give YouTube creators and other talent the opportunity to reach an even wider audience.

Disney announces details on upcoming streaming service

Disney has chosen Disney+ as the name of its highly anticipated streaming service, which is set to come out in late 2019. The name echoes the nomenclature of Disney’s existing ESPN+ streaming service.

The service already has two new exclusive series from Star Wars and Marvel lined up to populate two of a planned five content channels on Disney+. The others will be Disney, Pixar and National Geographic (which Disney is acquiring from 21st Century Fox).

The decision to focus on specific brands is in high contrast to the high-volume strategies of Amazon Prime and Netflix, but Disney CEO Bob Iger said that differentiation will help it garner loyalty.

Original shows will include such fare as a series with perennial antihero Loki, brother of Thor; and a Star Wars show with Diego Luna as Cassian Andor.
