YouTube Premium (previously YouTube Red) is a paid streaming subscription service exclusively for YouTube in the United States, Australia, Mexico, New Zealand and South Korea. It provides advertising-free streaming of all videos hosted by YouTube, offline play and background playback of videos on mobile devices, access to advertising-free music streaming through Google Play Music, and early access to "YouTube Premium Original series and films". And thanks to YouTube contacting Joey Graceffa and he had the idea to create the challenge based surreality show based on a deadly dinner party called "Escape The Night".
New YouTube Originals series, movies and live events released after September 24th, 2019 will be made available to non-members to watch for free, with ads. For series, members will get immediate access to every episode of a new season as well as Director's cuts and bonus footage, while non-members will have to wait for each new episode to be released.  It is unknown if seasons released before this date will still require a subscription to watch, but does mean Season 5 will be free with ads.
It is currently unknown if this plan will still be with Escape the Night, as Joey Graceffa and other fans have expressed their concerns in the early access for members only change.
