YouTube Introducing Free TV Shows (With Ads) on All Platforms

YouTube has announced that it will now provide access to thousands of free TV shows for streaming on all platforms.

In a recent blog post, YouTube stated that US viewers will now have the ability to stream full seasons of shows absolutely free.

The catch, however, is that these free episodes will of course come with ads that YouTube is notorious for.

In fact, the company recently played a role in shutting down a popular ad-free YouTube alternative that was used by millions.

Some of the most popular shows include:

  • Sanctuary
  • Heartland

  • 21 Jump Street
  • Iron Chef
  • Wilfred
  • Most Haunted
  • Dennis the Menace
  • The Dick Van Dyke Show
  • and more

YouTube already has Free Movies and is advancing in the streaming space with this latest addition of TV Shows.

This isn’t the first time we have seen ad-supported streaming options as HBO Max and Peacock also offer these subscription versions.

  1. Hello Troy, I have been a follower for 7 years and although I am not a techy or close to becoming one I love your videos. They are not hard to understand because you explain them simply. I have a problem with my HBO Max and the absence of audio. I have tried suggestions but they don’t seem to work. I downloaded on my Samsung smart tv through my first gen firestick. My other tvs work fine. Should I have tried downloading Through my YOUTube subscription?
