First wave of premium, paywall content coming to YouTube next week
‘Lazer Team,’ ‘A Trip To Unicorn Island,’ and ‘Dance Camp’ all hit YouTube Feb. 10
The slate includes Lily Singh‘s A Trip To Unicorn Island documentary; Awesomeness feature film Dance Camp; PewDiePie‘s The Walking Dead-partnered adventure series Scare PewDiePie; and Rooster Teeth‘s Lazer Team, which was previously released in theaters.
All the films and series will be available exclusively as part of YouTube‘s paid subscription service, YouTube Red, which launched last October. Users pay $9.99 a month for access to ad-free videos across the platform, as well as exclusive access to original programming.
For those in countries not yet supported by YouTube Red, fans will have a chance to purchase content directly through YouTube or via Google Play.
The Feb. 10 launch is the first of many Red releases coming in 2016. Other announced content includes a scripted series from the Fine Brothers called Sing It!, projects from Joey Graceffa, College Humor, and more.
