YouTube Original Cobra Kai season 2 free

YouTube Drops its Paywall for Season 2 of Cobra Kai, for a Limited Time

YouTube is now streaming season 2 of Cobra Kai for free, starting with the first two episodes and moving on to weekly releases…

Google decided back in March of this year to give up on its head-to-head battle with Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, abandoning its exclusive original content paywall.

Just months later, YouTube executives confirmed the news of planning to make premium subscription content available for free in the form of an ad-supported model.

Then, in August, the video hosting platform made Cobra Kai season 1 available without having to pay. Now, Cobra Kai season 2 is live.

YouTube Releases Cobra Kai Season 2 for Free

YouTube is making the first two episodes available without a premium subscription before subsequent episodes will roll out weekly.

Cobra Kai enjoyed huge success, with season 1, episode one, garnering 55 million views. But, was outdone when season 2 hit.

Even though all YouTube Originals will be available without paying for Premium access, subscribers will still have key perks. These include watching ad-free and getting immediate access to all episodes of new seasons. Plus, paying members enjoy access to bonus content and directors’ cuts.
