In order to heightened the excitement of your video, YouTube premieres are created. This is an added feature of YouTube that helps creators build momentum and anticipation.
In addition, it also allows viewers to watch a video altogether.
Think of it as a movie premiere but in this case, Youtubers interact with you through the comment section and live chat.
So since this type of content is highly anticipated by subscribers, many want to watch them earlier, but is it possible? Let us explain to you below.
How To Watch A YouTube Premiere Early
At this moment, there is no way of watching a YouTube Premiere earlier than the scheduled premiere time. Viewers can either look out for instant premieres or wait for the scheduled ones.
This type of content means scheduling a video on your channel which gets to be watched at the time set for its premiere. The video is already uploaded and visible on your channel but it only gets to be watched on a set time.
The function of the ‘premiere’ is like having a shared experience, similar to watching a new movie together where viewers can interact during the premiere schedule.
Because of this reason, being able to watch a YouTube Premiere video early wouldn’t make sense, if you can watch one then it’s just a regular video.
Creating A YouTube Premiere
If you want to create a Premiere, follow these steps:
- Go to YouTube Studio
- Upload a video (shorts excluded)
- You can select ‘Set as instant premiere’ and save
- The video premiere will set to active right away
- Select Schedule then choose time and date
- Set a schedule as an option If you want to have a schedule at a later time and day
- Then click done when you are all set.
When creating a Youtube Premiere, you also have the option to personalize it by including a countdown timer, a theme or even a video trailer.
Instant Premiere Vs. Scheduled YouTube Premiere
Instant Premiere is where a Youtubers video goes live instantly. The channel owner still gets to interact with his subscribers while watching a new YouTube video for the first time.
Scheduled YouTube Premiere is when a video goes live at a set time and day.
The You tuber will have more time to let their subscribers know about the upcoming video premiere either by:
- Sharing the URL of the video premiere
- Announcing on social media platforms and website
- Announcing on email listings
Overall, YouTube Premiere allows Youtubers to build a stronger engagement with their viewers.
This feature allows them to build a more personal bond with their subscribers as they get to chat with them before or after the video premiere.
