Today I’m going to walk you through how to premiere a video on YouTube. When you premiere a YouTube video, you can actually notify your subscribers that a premiere is going live and then interact with them in real time as the video premieres. This is a great option for channels that are built around communities. Also, watch time tends to be longer for premiered videos since subscribers are actually getting to watch along with the creator and interact.

How to Set Up a Premiere

  1. Start the video upload the process as normal.
  2. You’ll see a Premiere option on the right side of the screen.premiere a video on YouTube

  5. Set the date and time that you want your video to premiere.
  6. To premiere the video immediately, leave the drop down menu on Public and click the blue Premiere Now button at the top of the page.
  7. This will give you the link to your video. Now you can paste it into your browser.
  8. You’ll see a video countdown when you paste the link.
  9. Your chat box will be located at the bottom right of the page.
