YouTube Rental Service Gets Disney Films

Ryan Whitwam

Just a Holiday heads up for you all. Starting today, Google has added a raft of Disney movies to is YouTube-based movie rental service. Classics like Alice in Wonderland and Winnie the Pooh are available, but new titles like Cars 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean are there too. It appears that Apple’s super-close relationship with Disney wasn’t enough to keep this content from Google.

These titles are, as we said, for rent on YouTube, but also in the Android Market. This allows users to stream, and save the movies for offline viewing. Pricing is $3.99 for most titles, and the viewing window is 24 hours.

With many Americans on the way to see family, it’s a fine time to get access to some new rental content. More Disney movies are going to appear in the Google ecosystem in the coming weeks, as well.
