“Last Wednesday, just before the Thanksgiving break, YouTube announced a deal with Walt Disney Studios which will make hundreds of new and classic movies from Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks available for rental. The Disney deal adds to the online movie rentals (or ‘iVO’” as this category is also known) initiative YouTube announced last May. Between the breadth of movies soon to be available, its aggressive pricing – including $.99 rentals on recently-released blockbusters, its integration in numerous connected devices and of course, its status as the online video market’s 800-pound gorilla, YouTube may just have what it takes to disrupt the iVOD market, impacting the broader Hollywood and movie distribution industries.”
While Disney seems to be losing its flair for making memorable movies recently, its older movies will forever stay gold and remain a part of many childhood memories. If you’re one of those people who grew up with Disney cartoons, you’ll be glad to know that they are all just a click away thanks to the wonder of YouTube. Google has announced today that the first of hundreds of The Walt Disney Studios movies will be available for rent on YouTube.
“Walt Disney Studios has struck a deal with Google-owned YouTube to make its films available for rental on the website.
The pact includes hundreds of titles from Disney, DreamWorks and Pixar, including ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ and ‘Cars 2.’
YouTube relaunched its rental store in May with thousands of titles from Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures. But the Disney deal is the first significant addition to the store since the relaunch.
YouTube makes movies available on an a la carte basis from the aforementioned studios ranging from $1-4 depending on whether they are library titles or releases timed day and date with the home-video window.”
