Full length films on YouTube


by David Allen

The online video website, YouTube, has signed an agreement with the internationally known film studio, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), to show full length films on the website at no cost to the viewer.

Although there are probably not going to be any blockbuster films at the moment there will be clips, and the full length films will initially include films which are several years old.

The service will be free to users of the channel because the films will include advertising.

MGM are hopeful that this could grow into a reasonable business and with YouTube’s two hundred eighty million users every month it has to be a good place to start.

YouTube believes that once this service is up and running other studios may want to get in on the action, in fact they are expecting to add an additional five to ten channels which will give the users a wider choice of content.
