YouTube to bring more movies and TV shows to its subscription service

By | December 3, 2015


YouTube is planning to bring more TV shows and movies to its YouTube Red service. According to The Wall Street Journal, YouTube is planning to get rights of more movies and TV shows. The company wants to take on currently available streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu with its Red service.

Currently, lots of movies and shows are available on YouTube, but it is not up to the mark of other video streaming services. So, to make YouTube Red service more acceptable, YouTube executives are seriously thinking about adding more contents to its portal.

According to the sources, the main focus of the online video service provider is to bring new contents that will release on YouTube first before going to some other channels. The company may also offer some contents that could be exclusive to YouTube.

As of now, YouTube Red is only available in US at $9.99 per month subscription fee. This streaming service from Alphabet owned company offers its customers total ad free contents from the site. It also offers access to the content of some video bloggers stars like PewDiePie.

If the report of WSJ is true, we may see some of best Hollywood movies and TV shows on YouTube Red in near future. The more contents option on YouTube Red will also attract more users. Currently, the negotiations are in early phase, so it may take time before these contents come to YouTube red. You may have to sign up for another subscription for accessing all the great contents.
