Yesterday, YouTube launched ‘Primetime Channels’, a new streaming hub aggregating content from over 30 of the biggest streaming partners, including Paramount+, Showtime, Epix, AMC+, and Starz. 

The new feature can be found in YouTube’s Movies & Shows hub, which can be found in the Explore tab. There, users can get a personalized experience of recommended shows and movies, as well as curated trailers, behind-the-scenes footage and cast interviews.

The blog post reads: “People already come to YouTube to watch trailers for highly anticipated movies, or clips of scenes from their favorite TV episodes. Now you can continue watching directly on YouTube. And you will continue to have choice and control over your accounts with the ability to manage all of them in one place.”

‘Primetime Channels’ is currently only available to U.S. users, but YouTube plans to expand to international markets in the future.
