YouTube Adds More Free Movies And Ads-Supported To Its Site

An announcement by AdAge says YouTube has added 100 Hollywood movies to its website and has ad supported but not widely reported to users

An announcement by AdAge says YouTube has added 100 Hollywood movies to its website and has ad-supported but not widely reported to users. Not only the old movies like "Rocky" or "The Terminator,", famous recent films have also been released for free such as Agent Cody Banks, Zookeeper, and Legally Blonde.

Since then, YouTube has only provided services like Amazon Video and Apple's iTunes, where users pay for watching movies and TV shows.

The report also added that YouTube is currently actively looking for entertaining sources and advertising companies such as proprietary film and sponsorship. It is certain that YouTube intends to promote ads for these free movies on its platform.

There are a lot of companies that do the same thing but YouTube has a big advantage over it as it has up to 1.9 billion active users every month. It also has the ability to analyze and deliver the right type of ads to the right people through Google’s huge user data.

YouTube’s motivations to promote the addition of ad-supported movies to its website is Roku's participation in the market. Roku has started the free movie collection for users named The Roku Channel since 2017. Early this year, Roku has expanded its activities by releasing and updating the latest news from reputable and well-known channels such as Cheddax, Newsy, Yahoo, ABC News, The Young Turks, and People TV. Recently, Roku also offers live sports and entertainment programs.

Not only Roku and YouTube Walmart also owns a free movie collection called Vudu. Walmart recently has also partnered with MGM to get the authorized content of its service offerings.

In addition, Tubi also has a free online service along with promotional support. Amazon is said to be working on similar plans.
