You'll be able to watch YouTube's original programs and movies without a YouTube Premium subscription from 2020 if you're willing to sit through ads. However, you do not have to wait for two years to access the free supported ad. YouTube currently offers more than 100 movies with functional length for free.
YouTube Movies Free to Watch
A free movie on YouTube is a great option for those occasions when you can not find anything to watch Netflix, whose catalog is more focused on TV shows than movies. You can find YouTube's free to watch movies here, or you can navigate to it by clicking the menu button at the top left of the YouTube website and selecting Movies and shows . Browse the rents in the Recommended categories for you and New versions and click Free to watch .
The YouTube collection of free movies is missing new releases and scared of awful titles (the Pauly Shore vehicle BioDome, to name one), but there are some beads. I can always see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels another 80 times, and it has been a long time since I've seen any of the Rocky Movies or Pink Panther movies.
All YouTube's Free to Watch movies are tagged as free with ads. In my display of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, I had to sit through a 15 second ad approximately every 10 minutes. I would complain about the adsorptive character of ads that start to seemingly random spots in the movie, sometimes in a character's dialogue, but then I remembered that I looked for free.
