What’s better than free, ad-supported movies? Free movies without ads, of course, but YouTube has begun offering what is arguably the next best thing: ad-supported TV shows. The world’s biggest video-sharing platform already enables free streaming of over 1,500 movies that include classics like RoboCop and Dances with Wolves, but the company is doubling down on the generosity by making thousands of TV show episodes available to stream for free. They include full seasons of Hell’s Kitchen, Andromeda, Heartland, and more. YouTube has also introduced some changes to the UI for improved navigation and aesthetics.

[…] US viewers for the first time will be able to watch full seasons of TV shows on YouTube for free with ads. Now you can stream nearly 4,000 episodes of your favorite TV shows, including Hell’s Kitchen, Andromeda, Heartland and more.

YouTube also has over 1,500 movies from Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, FilmRise, and more. New titles in March include Gone in Sixty Seconds, Runaway Bride and Legally Blonde, which are now available to stream for free with ads.

To enhance the viewing experience, we’re unveiling brand new streamlined navigation and immersive banner art. The rich visuals and new menus will help you more easily find your favorite TV shows from the comfort of the couch, whether you choose to rent, purchase, or watch for free with ads. Many of these titles are also now available in high definition 1080p with 5.1 surround sound audio on supported devices.

U.S. users can access these movies and shows and up to 100 new titles each week on web browsers, mobile devices, and most connected TVs via the YouTube on TV app.
