YouTube Collaborates with MGM to Add 600 Rental Titles
YouTube has announced that it is extending its list of available rentals this past Monday.
Titles include films such as “West Side Story,” “Moonstruck,” “The Terminator,” “Robocop,” “Rain Man” and “Rocky,” according to a company blog post from Jonathan Zepp, the manager of TV and film content partnerships.
The films are available not only on YouTube but also on Google’s tablet and smartphone marketplace, Google Play.
YouTube also recently partnered Paramount to add about 500 titles to the online store. This is part of an aggressive plan to compete with popular content stores including Apple's iTunes store and Amazon's Prime marketplace.
According to the post, several MGM titles will be available for rent starting Monday, with more to be added in the coming weeks.
