YouTube now features ‘Free with Ads’ Hollywood movies, no ads in YouTube Premium
November 26, 2018 / Edward East
While YouTube has recently been pushing users to music and video subscriptions, as well as supporting favorite channels, the Google company is still introducing new ad-supported options. The video site in October started streaming movies like the “Terminator” and “Rocky” for free, but with occasional advertising. As spotted by AdAge, YouTube last month made about 100 Hollywood titles “Free with Ads” as they are officially labeled. Notably, this green denotation only appears in certain places on YouTube, like the right-column of “Up next” video suggestions. Elsewhere, like in Search, there is no indication that the movies are free to watch.
