2010 looks like the year YouTube will leap back into headlines for non-Susan Boyle-related reasons. Thank god for that. After yesterday's live cricket streaming deal was mentioned, their move into online movie rentals should make indie movie lovers happy.
The Wall Street Journal reports that YouTube is deep in discussions with the movie studios to offer both paid (likely $3.99) and ad-supported movie rentals. This would include new releases, which would be new to YouTube.
