YouTube is making movies available for free in the US

The Terminator

If you are looking for something to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, YouTube is showing some top-tier Hollywood films in their entirety, but you do have to sit through some commercials to watch them for free.

Over in the Movies & Shows section, YouTube has been allowing customers to buy TV shows and films for some time.

The reasons users are supporting the change are obvious; everyone likes free movies. The movies YouTube is already showing for free have ad breaks, just like in many regular YouTube videos.

The choices you make - and your overall performance - will affect your score and reputation inside the trading outpost. In Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance , guests must navigate an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order.

YouTube's new Free to Watch section now hosts about 100 feature-length titles that span movie genres, and you don't have to be a subscriber to YouTube's premium service to stream any of them. One is this: You can now watch Rocky on YouTube with little to no hassle.

YouTube says that it started the ad-supported movies due to demand from viewers and that it saw the ad spots as an opportunity for advertisers. "Can we do ad-supported movies, free to the user?"

YouTube earns revenue from the movies through advertisements, instead of charging customers to view the movies. Walmart's streaming service Vudu, as well as Tubi, offer their own selection of free films. Rohit Dhawan, YouTube's director of product management, wouldn't reveal the deal he's struck with studios like MGM to offer their movies for free to audiences, but he said the limited selection will be expanding in the future and that advertisers may eventually be able to pay to sponsor a particular movie.
