Rent Hollywood Movies on YouTube (U.S. Only)

YouTube signed deals with major Hollywood studios including Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures and Lions Gate Entertainment to offer Hollywood movies on YouTube on a rental basis. This service is available only in the United States.

The rental has a mix of recent Hollywood blockbusters, independent and foreign movies for 99 cents up to $3.99 each. Most of the movies are priced around $2.99. In addition, hundreds of movies are made available for free viewing as with other clips.

U.S. YouTube users can upgraded their YouTube accounts and then pay to watch a movie, which they have 30 days to begin viewing. Once users begin watching the movie, they typically have 24 hours to finish.
