Youtube Primetime

Youtube is all set to put all your favorite content, from creator videos to award-winning films and shows, in its single mainstream app from now onwards. Under its latest feature called Primetime Channels, it will stock around 34 premium channel streaming services for those users who subscribe to it.

It will include some popular channels like Paramount, AMC+, Showtime, Starz by Lionsgate, AMC+ by AMC Network, Vix+ by TelevisaUnivision, and more than 24 niche-oriented channels. The homepage of these channels will include BTS footage, Cast interviews, trailers, movies, and episodes.

The subscription to Primetime channels will be directly available to users through Youtube’s main app, similar to Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime Video apps. All you need to do is to navigate to Youtube’s Movies & TV option to access it.

After subscribing to the channels, users will be able to see all the available videos through the main Youtube interface, even when browsing for streaming content or searching it within the search results.

The company is trying to add more services for the subscribers to buy directly from the Youtube App, including the NBA League Pass. Soon, more features will be added, and the service will be available internationally for all users.

As per the company, millions of users daily access the platform to see the highlights of the NBA league, their favorite shows, the latest MrBeast Challenge, the latest hits, etc. By offering them more streaming services in one place, Youtube is trying to save their efforts and time jumping from app to app to find what they want to stream.

The early version of the Primetime Channels feature is currently rolled out in the US, effective from November 1, 2022. Soon, it will be released for other countries with more features and content to explore & stream.

With this revolutionary collaboration, not only Youtube but also the streaming services like Paramount get benefitted as they will get a diverse and vast viewership through the platform.

Previously, Youtube used to stream several premium channels like Starz, Showtime, etc., through its Youtube TV paid service. But now, the PrimeTime Channel is expanding it to a whole new level under the mainstream app.

Notably, some major streams, like Hulu, Disney+, Netflix, etc., are still missing from the list of Youtube’s PrimeTime Channels, but who knows, we might get a chance to stream them all in one place under this service in the future!
