When Cobra Kai made his debut on YouTube last year and Ralph Macchio and William Zabka repeated their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, of course I had low expectations. Extremely low. These restarts never work. Everyone will look old and crazy, the story will come to life and feel senseless.
Imagine my surprise when Cobra Kai turned out to be a damn good show. Of course, I only saw the first two episodes that YouTube offers for free. I did not plan to subscribe to another streaming service just to watch a series.
Good News:. From September 24, you can watch this program and other original YouTube content for free. However, if you are not a subscriber, you have to deal with advertising.
I'm not sure how long the series will be available for free or whether you can get both seasons, but I'm waiting for a comment on Google and will update the post when it arrives.
However, this is the perfect time to re-acquaint yourself with the young Daniel, the young Johnny, and the dearly deceased Mr. Miyagi. So you can watch the original movie of Karate Kid online. (You really only have to look at the first one, which will prepare everything that happens in Cobra Kai, but if you want to go through the three sequels, they will be available as well.)

Watch The Karate Kid For Free, With Ads For Free or For $ 4
Unfortunately, the movie is currently not available through HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Showtime or any other stream service you may already be paying for – with One exception: you can view it as part of your CBS All Access subscription. (Disclosure: CBS owns CNET.)
If you're new to this service, you can try the Commercial Free Plan for a week for free. After that, it's $ 9.99 a month. And for what it's worth, All Access has not just the original, but The Karate Kid: Part II, The Karate Kid: Part III and The Next Karate Kid.
The movies are also "free with ads" (ie you need to browse through some commercials) at the following services:
Of course, you can also borrow the movies. The Karate Kid costs $ 3.99 for most major services: Amazon, Google Play, iTunes and so on.
