YouTube to Offer Full-Length Movies

YouTube is planning to offer full-length feature films on its site within the next 30 to 90 days.

Although I like the idea of being able to screen complete movies on YouTube, they have to be of high-enough resolution that they won’t completely pixelate in full screen view.

Otherwise, I’m still renting or downloading (legally, of course) DVDs.

YouTube is trying to make nice with major studios so they can offer feature films on their site. CNet announced the news yesterday that the Google-owned company is in negotiations to launch an ad-supported, streaming movie service (perhaps expanding their Screening Room section?).

“It’s not imminent,” one of the executives told CNet. “But it’s going to happen. I would say you can expect to see it, if all goes well, sometime within the next 30 to 90 days.”

You know what this means? YouTube vs. Hulu fight to the digital death!
