YoutubeTechWatch reports that Youtube has unleashed free on-demand movie streaming.
Movies from big companies are included as well.

This is achieved due deals by Google with Sony, MGM but also BlinkboxThe move comes after Google’s video behemoth struck deals with the likes of Sony, MGM and also Blinkbox.

At PC Pro, Blinkbox CEO Michael Comish says:

“We hope that people will try them and then come back and use Blinkbox, although we are making some revenue from adverts sold around the service"

Blinkbox provides over 150 films and is willing to give its footage away for free as it will receive money from advertising, as well as raised brand awareness through the partnership with YouTube.

TechWatch further elaborates:

Initially, over 400 movies are on offer, although don’t expect a library full of blockbusters, given that these are free.
It’s more focused on cult and classic films, such as Howling IV and Night of the Living Dead.

There are also documentaries here, along with Bollywood hits, and let’s not forget the Batchelor Party in the Bungalow of the Damned. A horror film, and probably in more ways than one.

Have a look at the YouTube Films channel.

Earlier this week TechWatch reported that Google has launched a new Youtube mobile site:

The new YouTube for mobile site has been fine tuned in terms of speed, to the point that the company now claims it runs as fast, or perhaps even faster, than a dedicated application.

This feat has been achieved with the introduction of HTML5 technology – which, of course, you’ll need an HTML5 capable mobile browser to get the benefit of.

Other enhancements include a substantially tweaked user interface. Social networking support has been improved, with the introduction of the ability to share links with others via Facebook and Twitter, and to like or dislike videos.
