Back in January YouTube began testing a movie rental service that would allow YouTube users to watch TV shows and movies on their computers. As of today the YouTube movie rental service has gone live in the US.
YouTube users are now able to rent episodes of TV show and movies for forty eight hours, a single TV episode will cost you $0.99 whilst a movie will cost you $3.99.
The service is now available at YouTube.com/store, and it looks like it is only available on the US version of YouTube as it wasn’t available when we tried it from the UK.
Movie and TV show rentals are paid for using Google’s Checkout service, and you can stream the videos to your computer or HDTV.
