YouTube shifts to make new exclusive shows, movies free to users
Updated : November 28, 2018 06:49 AM IST
The shift in strategy means that starting next year, YouTube Premium will no longer have exclusive access to original programs, removing one of the main benefits of the subscription offering.
YouTube has not disclosed the total number of subscribers for the paid offering, launched three years ago, which is available in 29 countries.
Some future programming or behind-the-scenes content may remain exclusive to subscribers, if only for a brief time, according a person familiar with the thinking.
