YouTube now offers free, ad-supported streaming Hollywood movies

As AdAge reports, YouTube chose to introduce free, ad-supported movie streams because it's what users want, with Rohit Dhawan, director of product management at YouTube, stating "We saw this opportunity based on user demand, beyond just offering paid movies".

You can find the titles in the Free To Watch section of YouTube's Movies and Shows channel.

Saudi prosecutor seeks death penalty for suspects in Khashoggi's killing
Al-Jubeir said the kingdom is investigating and holding those responsible to account "to make sure this doesn't happen again". Erdogan has said Turkey also played the recordings to Saudi officials, something Shalaan declined to confirm or deny.

'It also presents a nice opportunity for advertisers'. If you're a YouTube Premium subscriber, you should get the movies without any commercial breaks - another perk for handing over a subscription fee every month.

No one's going to confuse most of the titles that headline YouTube's recently-launched section of free, ad-supported movies with anything that resembles a Best Picture all-star list.

Pound extends rally on report British PM seals Brexit financial services deal
Another British official also speaking on condition of anonymity said that, while there was progress, nothing was finalised yet. The EU has so far resisted calling a special summit to sign off a Brexit deal, which had been penciled in for mid-November.

Dhawan said there may eventually be a way for advertisers to pay to sponsor individual movies, giving users complimentary views and exclusive screenings.

Maybe you're familiar with this scenario: you really want to see a certain movie, but it's not streaming anywhere online. According to a report from AdAge, Google started this process in October and includes movies which are either classics or unlikely to make more money otherwise. Walmart's streaming service Vudu, as well as Tubi, offer their own selection of free films. Other companies have been in the market for some time. There is no "Free to Watch" section for TV shows yet. Her work also appears in Reuters, NPR, and NBC among other publications.
