Salar Kamangar, Head of YouTube announced that the video site was adding 3000 more movies to its movie rental channel for the users in the U.S.. Kamangar wrote a post about the news on YouTube blog on May 9. From now on, you can watch blockbusters such as The King's Speech at home as long as you open YouTube and pay a few dollars for the movie streaming service.
The newly added 3000 movies are streamed via the new partnership with known studios include Warner Bros, Universal and Sony Pictures. New movies available include Oscar-winner The King's Speech, Inception, The Green Hornet, Little Fockers and Despicable Me.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Rentals at YouTube start at $2.99 for library titles and $3.99 for new releases. Renters have 30 days to watch their chosen film but only 24 hours to finish once they have begun streaming."
"..you're spending just 15 minutes a day on YouTube, and spending five hours a day watching TV. As the lines between online and offline continue to blur, we think that's going to change", Salar Kamangar said.
