Consumers just got yet another option for entertaining their kids with Disney movies.
Disney just agreed to rent its movies on YouTube -- it will offer hundreds of films from Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks Studios on YouTube starting today for between $1.99 and $3.99. Disney will receive the majority of revenue.
This makes YouTube a real contender in the video-on-demand space, building its reputation as a destination for premium professional content, and not just silly pet videos. Disney joins Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers, which started renting movies on YouTube back in May. Now YouTube has "thousands" of movie titles for rent.
