YouTube Red was primarily touted as a way to view YouTube videos without commercials. Now it seems as though YouTube Red is being marketed as a streaming service for original series much like Netflix. Two of the most promising ones so far are the Lazer Team films and the upcoming Good Game. Hit the jump to find out more.
Lazer Team 2
Previously, YouTube Red was advertised as a means to watch your favorite YouTube videos without commercials however, this feature isn’t very alluring to those who already watch YouTube with Ad Blocker. However, what YouTube Red does offer that Ad Blocker cannot are certain original titles. YouTube Red will have exclusive content available featuring some of the gaming community’s most popular personalities. For instance, the Rooster Teeth film, Lazer Team, will be getting a sequel and it will be released exclusively on YouTube Red. Lazer Team, starring some of Rooster Teeth’s biggest names, Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, and Michael Jones; had a short theatrical release in addition to being featured on YouTube Red so it is entirely possible that YouTube Red may become the only way to view Lazer Team 2. Check out the announcement from Burnie and Gavin!
Another exciting original title coming to YouTube Red is Good Game. The series, Good Game will follow two friends who set out to compete in an esports competition for a grand prize and will star Daniel Avidan and Arin Hanson of the popular Game Grumps Let’s Play YouTube channel. Not only that but the showrunners, Sarah Carbiener and Erica Rosbe are writers from the brilliantly dark and comedic show, Rick and Morty.
