Netflix is aiming to make its content more accessible with streaming seemingly at an all-time high due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, you can watch select Netflix original shows for free on YouTube.
Netflix hasn’t added its most popular shows such as Stranger Things or Tiger King to YouTube, however, but you can in turn take advantage of a slate of educational programs, including documentaries like fan-favorite Our Planet.
The decision to cross-pollinate content could be to bring more attention to Netflix’s YouTube channel, which is hosting the original shows. Either way, as many of us remain in quarantine for the foreseeable future amid the global coronavirus crisis, the more access, the better.
Below you can see a list of the Netflix programs — and descriptions — that are currently viewable on the streaming platform’s dedicated YouTube page. Happy streaming!
