Watcing movies online is something that seems to become more and more common as each year passes, and according to analysts, online movie viewing in the United States will double this year to make it the majority choice of consumers home entertainment viewing. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, also known as MGM, has been bringing some of the most memorable films to media lovers for almost 90 years, and I'm very pleased to read that through a new partnership with MGM, Youtube will add over 600 new titles for rent on Youtube and the Google Play Store.
This is great news for Android, as there are now 5 major studios and more than 10 independant movie studios that are now offering movies that can be rented on our Android devices. MGM will be providing classic love films such West Side Story, classic action films like Terminator, Robocop, and Rocky, along with many many others for our viewing pleasure on Google Play and Youtube.
If you're in the US or Canada, this is certainly great news. As an American who's been living in Germany for 10 years, my question is: "WHEN WILL WE FINALLY SEE A EUROPEAN ROLLOUT THAT OPENS ALL GOOGLE PLAY FEATURES“!?!?!?......
….but that's an entirely different topic all together. Anyway, congrats to Google and Youtube for securing this deal, and I hope all our US readers enjoy the show :-D
