Beginning later this year, YouTube is bringing in huge names from the Showbiz industry such as Kevin Hart, Ellen Degeneres, and Demi Lovato. According to the most popular video platform, original content that started from subscription-service YouTube Red received a relatively positive feedback with fans asking for more. The only problem is that it’s not free.
So to bring more of those exclusive original content to their billion-plus of viewers, YouTube is launching the new ad-supported shows, meaning – it’s free to watch for everyone with an internet connection.
Check out the full list of the shows:

Lately, YouTube made a move that affected almost all YouTube Content Creator – making videos family-friendly. Implementing their newest rule or protocol, biggest YouTube Star, Pewdiepie felt the negative effect where videos of him containing “non-family-friendly” content were demonetized and further saying, that the income is smaller compared to what he was earning before.
Not only Pewdiepie got affected but also long-time Call of Duty fans where they upload videos of themselves playing, gained more views but with less money coming from it. CoD is known for its gore and action war scene gameplay that involves guns and assassinations.
Clearly, YouTube wants to publish ad-supported videos and shows in order to cope up from the loss of being family-friendly.
