For multi-episode series, the first episode of a YouTube Originals series is available free. In selected countries where the service is not yet available, individual episodes can also be purchased through YouTube or Google Play Movies & TV. Access to YouTube Originals is also included in YouTube's separate streaming television service YouTube TV, but a YouTube Premium subscription is still required for the service's other benefits.
In November 2018, it was reported that YouTube was planning to offer some of its premium shows available for free on an ad-supported basis by 2020. The Premium subscription would still cover ad-free access, timed exclusivity windows for original content, and content that is not made freely-available. A full list of all previous and upcoming YouTube Original Series can be found here.
Some of the most famous original series are Scare PewDiePie, run in cooperation with Swedish gaming YouTuber PewDiePie, Markiplier, Smosh, GameGrumps and MatPat, and Kedi a Turkish original film which features the lives of cats roaming free on the streets of Istanbul, containing documentaries of people who have interacted with them.
