YouTube Red, YouTube's relatively new feature you have to (gasp!) pay for, offers subscribers exclusive feature-length films and web series for $9.99 per month. On Wednesday, February 10, the first four pieces of original content -- Lilly Singh's A Trip to Unicorn Island documentary, Rooster Teeth's Lazor Team comedy movie, "Scare PewDiePie," and Awesomeness TV's Dance Camp -- dropped.
YouTube Red is just getting started, though. The service also announced two more upcoming projects on its blog today. The first is Gigi Gorgeous's documentary, which will explore what it's like to be a transgender woman in the media. The second is another series from Awesomeness TV, this time starring JennxPenn and Logan Paul. Both are slated for a 2016 release, so get your binge-watching sweatpants ready.
Other projects in the works include PrankvsPrank's Prank Academy (which will teach you and celeb guests how to pull off the sweetest prank ever), CollegeHumor's Bad Internet series, Alpine Labs' Fight of the Living Dead reality show, and a virtual reality experience from The Game Theorists. It looks like Netflix has some steep competition.
If you aren't quite ready to take the YouTube Red plunge, the website offers a free one-month trial. (Unfortunately, YouTube Red subscriptions are only available in the U.S., but each movie and web series episode is available for individual purchase in eligible countries.)
