YouTube to offer online rentals of 500 Paramount films, which includes "Hugo" and "The Godfather

YouTube, the world’s most popular online video website, streams 4 billion videos every day and its users upload more than 60 hours of video to the site every minute. Although much of the content on YouTube consists of home videos that are free to watch, YouTube has increasingly added professionally-produced content, some of it available to rent for a fee.

YouTube has announced a movie rental partnership with Paramount Pictures. It would offer online rentals of nearly 500 Paramount films, including “Hugo” and “The Godfather,” rounding out its growing catalog of feature-length movies.

The Paramount deal means that YouTube now has movie rental deals with five of the six major film studios, as well as more than ten independent film studios, giving it access to a catalog of nearly 9,000 films.

Consumers can rent the films, generally for 24 hours or 48 hours, for anywhere from $2.99 to $3.99.

The Paramount movies, which include recent releases and classics, will be available in the United States and Canada over the next few weeks. Consumers can rent the movies on the YouTube website, or on Google Play, Google’s online storefront for music, games, movies and other types of media.

Innovative Startup: Clipster-Video.com – Share Videos On Your Facebook Page

Clipster is a tool that lets you do something that not even the new Timeline lets you do: to feature multiple videos at once in any Facebook fanpage that you have. These can be taken both from YouTube and Vimeo, and this service is free for these pages that have up to 500 likes.

Clipster works by adding a simple player to your page. This player can be customized in lots of different ways (you can change its header and its background color, for example), and the content itself can be split into lots of different categories. Which is just great if you have a page that deals with many different sports at once, and you want to let people access content in a more logical way. And this applies to mostly everything, really. A fashion page, a music page, a culinary page… Clipster lets you have everything arranged in the tidiest of ways.

Infographic: Youtube Killed TV


Is the golden age of TV already long gone? Today all major TV services stream their content online and viewers have more power to choose from than ever. Acorrding to the creators of this infographic from Freemake.com, the death warrant of TV was signed with the emergence of the Internet, in particular with the flourishing of one company that was the embodiment of its destruction: YouTube.

At appmarket.tv we have talked for years about the future disruption of the broadcast industry and new gatekeepers in the living room. For half a century, not much has changed – scarcity is the control lever, the value chain has been static, and the industry has been top heavy. Print media was slammed by the Internet. Music was too. Publisher and record labels have been trying to reinvent themselves with a fervor that the broadcast and pay TV industries will be shaking with in the next five years. And fighting against the intersection of the web and TV is like putting a bandaid on an ax wound.
