9 New YouTube Red Orig­i­nals Hit­ting Screens in 2017


Google-owned YouTube Red is one of the major game players in the online video streaming industry who has come up with a lineup of ‘Original’ shows — going head to head with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.


YouTube Red hasn’t been along for a very long time, but it has carved a niche for itself, especially among the billions of YouTube users.

Although YouTube Red’s monthly subscription  — which costs $10 — is only available in a limited number of countries, the company allows YouTube users from several other countries to purchase YouTube Red Originals either on YouTube or Google Play.

“We are excited about working with our partners to help then create incredible content that delights their fans,” the company stated.

The company has already released 37 YouTube Red Original titles which have garnered over quarter billion views till date.

The Google-owned video sharing community platform is also stepping up its efforts to fight extremism and terrorism online, following the announcement of its parent company’s campaign towards creating a safer internet.

This announcement was made during VidCon, where the company made several other announcements about YouTube TV, VR and other developments to the app and desktop website.
