I'm betting this might happen to DC Universe in another few years (if it doesn't fold into the upcoming Warners app). It's a case of not having enough original content to support a subscription-based service. They'll make more out of advertising. And they had over 50 exclusive shows...DC has, as of this writing, two (with only a handful more rolling out in 2019).

I pay for YouTube Premium, but I’ve never watched one of their originals. The only one I’d consider watching is Cobra Kai which I sort of just forgot about. None of the rest of their original content interests me at all. I just pay for Premium as I watch regular YouTube enough where I don’t like sitting through the ads.

What about adblocker?

I typically watch through the app on my iPhone or Xbox One or Galaxy tablet. I don’t really use the browser version.

Maybe they have inspired of paid service of Netflix.

When will this rollout, and will previous Youtube Red content be available for free? I haven't watched all of Cobra Kai yet.

Since 2015, YouTube’s original content was only available to consumers willing to subscribe to the company’s streaming service, YouTube Premium. However, the company plans to combine its current Premium Originals and existing ad supported initiatives into a single programming effort that — by 2020 — will provide free, ad-supported “windows” for YouTube users.
They have free trials all the time. And Cobra Kai is completely worth paying for the service for a month. Just wait until Season 2 starts and either 1. try for a free trial 2. pay the monthly fee and watch both seasons.
