If there is an HD version of the movies available than I would be willing to pay for it.
BUT! It has to offer subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese (because not everyone is versed in english) and it should be up to $1.99. For the $3.99 I rather go to the nearest rental store and grab me a movie for $2.89 (+-) that I'm sure will work on any DVD player on the market.
Also, it has to be downloaded to the PC, else how can I watch? Streaming? No way. Youtube is way to slow for HD videos.

couldnt agree more
[citation][nom]thebigt42[/nom]"For years YouTube has been focused on letting users share home movies with the world. However, the video-sharing site may soon have to share the video section of Google's portfolio"I thought google purchased youtube over 4 years ago???[/citation]
True, and if they add another, paid-per-view video site, YouTube will no longer be the only video site in Google's portfolio.
Am I the only one that thinks that the player on youtube is a joke? I would prefer to see a movie through frontrow/iTunes than to have an HTPC with youtube. If they want to dominate the market they have to make an HTPC oriented media player that you can surf from the couch with a remote.
Btw I've seen movies that are BRrips encoded with .264 at Pal/NTSC dimensions that seem pretty cool, it doesn't have to actually be HD, i could settle for less for the right price.
The material is international and I hope they keep same pricing World Wide (same price in Europe, USA, Japan, Africa, China e.t.c.), they should also remember that $ ≠ Euro as far as currency exchange rates are concerned and not apply 1 $ = 1 Euro.
As much as i like Google i will say this, are they trying to create their own version of everything? i mean Google is starting to branch into every possible crevice of the market. once again im not saying this is a bad thing, just peculiar and i hope it doesn't go straight to their heads and create the Google equivalent of "Applehasamassiveego-itis"
Still prefer this over anything which apple tries to promote as something that is radical, dynamic and has so totally belonged to them from the start /sarcasm
If there should be a company that predominates on media distribution is Google. As I've mention previously in my comments, Google doesn't take over a industry sector, instead they form partnerships and platforms that allow multiple companies to compete over a homogeneous standard. In the case of Android, Gooogle provides the OS, but multiple companies compete for the best communication service, the best phones, etc.
Google is like the guy that found gold in California, and instead to keep it all to itself, went out and told everybody. Of course, only after he had setup a hardware shop to sell pick axes, shovels, and whatever else you need to mine gold.
These news are in relation to the Google TV platform.
[citation][nom]ch33ky[/nom]So is this going to only be oldmovies? Or can we expect to beable to view newly released moviesthe moment they come out?And it seems like a packed market withnetflix, apple, hulu, etc., don't it seem as ifwe don't need another place to watch if only for the "Google"?The only way I'd care is whenthe newly released movie could be streamed toyou the moment they come out in theaters![/citation]
This is Google getting ready for google tv. Nothing else. Pretty soon they will integrate this in with a youtube app.
