YouTube Red: What's the first Original Programs Impression?

Google debuted a new YouTube subscription service, Red, in late 2015 promising unique shows; viral hits and music videos you cannot find anywhere else. Now fast forward to February 10, 2016 as the first original series and movies are now available, exclusively for YouTube Red.

YouTube Red is perceived as Google's foray into the arena where Netflix Amazon, and Hulu have already dominated. So what can the company conjure to turn the table around to its favor, despite coming late to the party?

It differ from those typically found on Amazon or Netflix, given that them are focused more on promoting own favorite creators, and these YouTube's stars already have their own coterie of fans.

Find below the all new four original programs:

  • Dance Camp, an amazing story of unlikely friendships, unleashing passions, and discovering yourself all through the power of dance.
  • Scare PewDiePie, a reality-adventure comprising 10-episode series with Felix Kjellberg, aka PewDiePieas he faces near-impossible situations inspired by video games.
  • Lazer Team, an action-comedy about four people on a mission to save the Earth from aliens as they discover a spaceship from another world.
  • A Trip to Unicorn Island, a movie on Lilly Singh's 26-city world tour.


The obvious difference in the content is that all of them feature entertainers who became prominent on YouTube itself. This means that YouTube Red programs are aimed at the set of young people who make up the majority of the audiences for such performers as PewDiePie.

YouTube believes its content, bevy of talents and audience can make it the player to beat in paid streaming services.

While YouTube Red is currently available only in the United States, you can purchase individual videos on Google-owned YouTube or on Google Play.

YouTube Red members can check on YouTube Red Originals channel to stay up to date on the latest movies, shows, clips, trailers and exclusive behind-the-scenes content from favorite creators.
