YouTube Now Offering Movie Rentals

Google has unveiled YouTube Movie rentals, which will be comprised of various movies and TV episodes available to rent for 48 hours at a cost of 99-cents to $4. The Youtube Store can be found at youtube.com/store. It seems that the YouTube Movie portal is only available in the U.S. at present.

YouTube Now Offering Movie Rentals

Experiments were done back in January by Google where they were offering $5 rentals. The new system uses Google Check-out to allow you to pay for video.  Reportedly- Independent, Bollywood, Manga and documentary films dominate the charts so far. Assumingly, YouTube will make a formal announcement about the store soon. Although early tests were not that popular, wider selection of movies may improve the YouTube service’s popularity.
