Google Gearing Up For Pay-Per-View Streaming Movie Service

August 30, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Google is reportedly preparing to release their own pay-per-view rental service, a move they have been discussing for months, but have not yet finalized.

The Financial Times was reporting this morning that Google has been preparing for their own streaming rental service for months, which we have seen with small moves like the introduction of free short films and independent movies on YouTube.

With Apple set to release their own service through iTunes that expands on the purchases they already provide, and Netflix announcing their app for the iPhone and iPod Touch in addition to their iPad application, Google hopes to compete with an ever expanding industry.

There aren’t many details yet, but we will keep you updated.

    I and our friends would like to see the movies on our HDTV, not on our computer monitor.
    Do you have plans to provide the movies via HDTV?
    We are very satisfied with Netflix.
    I personally do not see a market for movies via a computer monitor.
