YouTube now offers streaming movie and TV show rentals

YouTube has secretly introduced a brand new streaming video store to their website recently joining iTunes and Netflix in distributing online streaming video at a cost.

YouTube’s rental service, which you can find at, still looks to be under construction (perhaps that’s why they didn’t make a big fuss about its initial launch). The pickings are slim right now as the majority of rental offerings include independent films including Precious, The Blair Witch Project and Kids among others. As for TV shows available for rent, unless you’re a big Japanese Anime fan, the isn’t much there either.

The films range in price from $.99 to $3.99 for a newer film. According to, the viewer has two days to watch the film before it expires.

I find it a bit strange that YouTube has suddenly, and stealthily, decided to offer streaming content at a price since they’ve become the free online video destination. I guess only time will tell if this takes off, but for now color me skeptical.
