YouTube is throwing its hat into the ring with Netflix and Amazon with original movies and series. It's not free, but the price at least is competitive.

Four new original shows and movies will debut on YouTube Red on Feb. 10. YouTube is the latest in a string of online-based services – including Amazon, Netflix, Hulu and Crackle – to launch original programming. But not everyone can watch the shows – just those with a YouTube Red subscription.

YouTube Red launched on Oct. 28 in the U.S. With a monthly fee of $9.99, the Red membership includes no-ad YouTube content, including no-ad music, as well as a Google Play Music subscription. You can click here for a free one-month trial of YouTube Red.

According to a YouTube blog post, these are the first four original programs that will debut on Red:

“The diverse, dynamic creators behind these films have already built massive audiences on YouTube, rivaling many cable shows,” YouTube says. “With YouTube Red Originals, we want to help them tell bigger and bolder stories that delight you, their fans.”

YouTube says it has more original programming planned for the future.
