YouTube May Offer Streaming Movie Rentals

The Wall Street Journal reports that four of the major movie studios are in discussions with online video giant YouTube to sell streaming movie rentals, or possibly offer some movies free, with advertising.

While the deals are in negotiation and far from finished, rental prices are said to be priced at about $US4 per flick. It's an open question whether such a deal would hit Australia, but if it did: would you pay, or expose yourself to ads, to stream commercial films via YouTube, whether on your PC or via a home media center?
