YouTube will reportedly make all its upcoming original programing free and ad-supported from 2020.

The new strategy will begin in 2019, but the content it’ll impact will drop in 2020.
Previously released original shows such as Origin andwill still require a subscription, while some future content or behind-the-scenes extras could still be timed exclusives for subscribers, according to Reuters, which cited an unnamed person familiar with the thinking.
Premium costs $2 (AU$15 or £12) per month, and the company justthat cuts the price in half. The company didn’t reveal how many subscribers it has.
Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
