YouTube will from 2020 offer original programmes for free, with advertising, Reuters reported, adding the company is in this way looking to up its audience for shows and movies previously restricted to paid subscribers. YouTube's paid option will continue to eliminate ads from originals and videos, and feature music streaming privileges. The new strategy will go into effect next year for content planned in 2019 and will debut fully in 2020.
