Can I Watch and Download Original TV Shows on YouTube?

For the moment, some TV shows uploaded by YouTube users are illegal, although these TV shows are copyrighted. With so many rogue accounts hosting illegal live shows, lots of YouTube users can watch the full episodes of popular TV shows for free on YouTube instead of spending money on Netflix.

But this phenomenon will not last long.

YouTube takes various measures to solve the illegal TV streaming problem. Most of the rogue accounts would be shut down within just a few hours. YouTube does its best to make it easy for people to report illegal copyright streams. Users who have multiple complaints against them can be banned from the platform entirely. At the same time, YouTube is working hard to create its own original series like Netflix & Amazon, and these shows will be available in YouTube originals.

Up to this time, YouTube does have a lot of high-quality original programs. Here, we list five popular YouTube originals and we will show you the ways to download YouTube TV shows for viewing them offline freely.

In Atlanta, there must be racial elements involved, the trailer also has gay relationships, and of course, there will be the biggest focus - many dances.

3.  Kedi

Kedi

Cats in Istanbul cannot be simply categorized as domestic cats or stray cats as we see on weekdays. They are free to enter and leave human life, close but free, between wild and domesticated. Istanbul people love cats. Many people have unique stories about themselves and cats. It's not so much that cats depend on people as that people depend on intimacy and fetters with cats. Some people think that cats are a bridge between themselves and God, and others think cats are a mirror of their lives in the world. Istanbul's cats are special because they are also residents, and Istanbul is their city.

Rhett and Link's Buddy System

Rhett and Link's co-ex-girlfriend is now a famous infomercial star, who is threatening to take control of the duo's famous show, Good Mythical Morning. They must work together on an adventure to get it back. The absurdist comedy, starring Red McLaughlin and Link Neil, is arguably the first YouTube original to be popular with mainstream audiences.
 

5.  Mind Field

Mind Field

In The Field of the Mind, host Michael Stevens brings his passion for science to his most ambitious topic so far: we know little about human behavior. Using real themes (including guest stars and Michael himself), the field of thought reveals some of the most exciting, important and unknown aspects of the human mind. Through expert interviews, rare historical experiments, and new and pioneering demonstrations of human nature, Mind Field explores what we know (and don't know) about why humans are like this.
