MGM adds its roster of flicks to YouTube, Google Play

PanARMENIAN.Net - Two weeks after Google stuck a deal with Paramount to make it 5-out-of-6 of the major movie studios, the Internet giant has announced that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) is the latest movie company to add its roster of flicks to YouTube and Google Play, TNW reported.

For almost nine decades, MGM has brought hoards of classic movies to the big (and little) screen, and with this latest partnership announced, more than 600 titles from MGM’s back catalogue will be made available to rent on YouTube and Google Play in the U.S. and Canada. This means Google now has MGM, five of the six major studios and over ten independent movie studios on board.

This means viewers will be able to enjoy West Side Story, Moonstruck, The Terminator, Robocop, Rain Man, Rocky and hundreds more. MGM will be adding more titles to the existing library in the coming weeks.

Movie fans in the U.S. have been able to rent movies on YouTube since 2010, and last April Google-owned video-streaming service was starting to bring the major studios on board, signing deals with the likes of Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Universal, as well as Lionsgate.

YouTube has been rolling out its movie-rental service to other countries in addition to the U.S. and Canada, and the UK was added shorty after Canada last year. It has since added the likes of Japan and France too.
