This weekend, it was discovered that YouTube began offering more feature films in its service, completely free. Among them are old touts, such as Legally Blonde and The Terminator.
Movies are available on YouTube for a long time, but at a fixed price. Now, however, they are financed from commercials that stop the video at a particular time.
Currently, only US users are in force. Here in Norway, these films still cost 29 crowns.
Reply to subscription services
Currently, there are many video streaming services available on the market, and users expect large amounts of money each month. The promise was that you do not have ads, but at the same time there is a limited number of services that you can subscribe to at the same time. It was a backdrop for YouTube to try videos financed by ads:
"We've seen that it not only offers movies to pay based on the wishes of the users, so we asked: can we get financing with it? Completely free for the user?" Said Rohit Dhawan, Product Manager YouTube on the AdAge website. He pointed out that this is also an excellent opportunity for advertisers who receive a new platform to disseminate their messages.

Currently, only about 100 movies can be watched for free. There are also no new films appreciated by critics in the selection. However, Americans can watch movies like Zookeeper or Agent Cody Banks, or some older movies like The Terminator or Rocky.
The film committee is expected to grow, but it depends on the advertisers and film companies that have to decide what they want. According to AdAge, the digital platform as a channel is still an unknown area for filmmakers. Previously, there was a regular timeline: films first appeared in movies, then on DVD and finally on television. Exactly where the movie distributed for free through YouTube ports on this line is not sure.
We've sent a question to Google Norway to find out if something similar can come to Norway.
Soon there will be another flow service:
