Robert Kyncl, YouTube's chief business officer, said in November that many of his originals currently available to YouTube Premium subscribers will soon be available for free. They include a mix of films ( The Thinning Viper Club ), reality shows with YouTubers ( Scare PewDiePie Prank Academy ). Series ( Wayne Impulse ) and documentaries ( BTS Burn the Stage Ariana Grande: Dangerous Women's Diaries ).
