YouTube Red, Google's ad-free premium version of the video streaming site, has released its first four attempts at original programming, right on time. As you'd expect, the initial crop of videos feature some of the service's biggest personalities, including PewDiePie and Lilly Singh. Also included are Rooster Teeth's feature-length movie Lazer Team and AwesomenessTV's Dance Camp.

All of this #content will be available to YouTube Red subscribers immediately. As for what's next, YouTube already announced an additional six shows coming this year. Expect videos like Fight of the Living Dead, which'll put popular YouTubers in "a frighteningly realistic zombie apocalypse," and Bad Internet, a CollegeHumor show lampooning web culture.

If you're already a subscriber, you can keep up with all the releases at the YouTube Red channel. The service costs $9.99 a month, which includes ad-free and offline YouTube video access, and a subscription to Google Music. It's only available in the US right now, but those abroad in some applicable countries will be able to pay for access to the original videos. We're seeing prices like £6.99 / €9.99 (about $10) for the Lazer Team movie and £1.89 / €2.49 (about $2.75) for an episode of Scare PewDiePie.
