The first season of Cobra Kai, which is one of YouTube's most popular originals to date, is now free to watch. It used to be exclusively available to paying subscribers until YouTube decided to switch up its strategy and make its premium originals available as ad-supported shows. The Google subsidiary promised to give the general public access to both upcoming and older shows, though previous releases will only be available for free for a limited time. In Cobra Kai's case, the whole first season will be available for streaming at no cost until September 11th. The second season will then replace it for free viewing that day.
