Disney and Youtube stream rentals for Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks


Disney and Youtube to offer streaming rentals for Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks Titles

Google has announced last Wednesday that the Youtube/Walt Disney Studios partnership has borne fruit – a rental streaming video hub that may end up going head to head with netflix and hulu in the future. While Youtube and Disney are exclusive co-partners in the distribution service, the titles offered are not limited to Disney’s library (which includes a lot of blockbuster features from Pixar and Dreamworks), primarily because Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers are also distributing titles on said service.

Currently, only users from the U.S. and Canada are able to sign up for access to Youtube’s growing library, but like Hulu before it, we all know that regional lockouts are a cap on a company’s profits and they will eventually find a way to allow people from all over the globe to participate.

There are hundreds of movies already planned for release on the soft launch of Youtube’s rental service, consisting of the heavyweights from the Disney-Pixar-Dreamworks trifecta, such as Alice in Wonderland, Cars, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

It is expected that Disney will announce a full list of titles they will make available in the coming weeks.
