YouTube, Google's online video streaming service, is in talks with Hollywood studios to rent new release movies online, according to people familiar with the talks. The move follows similar deals by Apple's iTunes and others. A final deal would be contingent on pricing and an agreed-upon release date, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because discussions were still ongoing. The move takes YouTube one step away from an ad-supported business model, but does not break the mold of other online rental deals.

That's another way of making money, which I don't agree anymore since there are so many other ways of getting movies for free and legal. Why should I pay for a movie when I can watch it online? And even now we can record it on pc for later playback: http://audials.com/en/blog/article/34/3-ways-to-legally-download-movies-and-videos-from-the-internet.html
