YouTube To Start Major Motion Picture Rentals Next Week?
Are you fed up with Netflix
just not working out? We highly
doubt you'll be answering "yes" to those, but if so, help is on the way
from a pretty wild source. Google's YouTube has just launched their
first major movie rentals, making it an instant competitor in a small
but powerful network of companies who are driving pay-TV executives up
the wall. Facebook has already started to trial this kind of thing, and
it makes sense for YouTube to try their hand as well. According to
reports, Google's working to line up more deals with movie companies in
order to launch a full-fledged rental program with titles from Sony,
Warner Bros., and more.
YouTube already rents indie films for $2.99, but major motion pictures
would obviously add a new level of excitement. Details on specifics
remain under wraps as YouTube presumably hammers out the final details,
but reports suggest that a full launch will be coming next week. So,
will you be stopping by YouTube for movie rentals? Or does Redbox still
have your heart?
