Google joins Hollywood bandwagon, eyes movie rentals

Google is in talks with Hollywood studios to start a pay-per-view video service on Youtube in a bid to bolster its presence in the crowded online TV and movie segment, Financial Times reported.

Google is negotiating with major studios to allow the streaming of movies onto Youtube from their catalogs on pay-per-view basis at $5 per movie, payable at the end of the year.

The current negotiations follow its earlier bid to woo TV broadcasters to support its Google TV. It received resistance from broadcasters on grounds of cannibalization of their content and a lack of revenue model around Google TV.

The digital movie and TV market has been steaming with activity compounded by recent rumors about Apple's possible launch of Apple TV with 99-cent television show rentals on its scheduled Sept. 1, 2010, press event. Also early this month Netflix signed deals worth $1 billion to stream movies from Paramount, Lionsgate, and MGM. With Hulu joining the bandwagon with the launch of its IPO, Google has a lot to contend with.

Google, Youtube and Hollywood :D

This is a nice concept and will also increase the need of SEO.
