Pay-Per-View Coming to YouTube

Google [GOOG] could be getting in to the Pay-Per-View movie rental game by transforming in to one of the major players by as early as this year.

The Financial Times is reporting that Google is speaking with Hollywood Studios to launch a service this year that will see movies streamed to users.

Google say that a mixture of the Google Search Engine and the busy YouTube service could see the service pushed out to a huge number of people.

It is expected that movie rental costs will be around the $5 range per movie.

With Apple [AAPL] potentially announcing something similar in the next few days at the September 1 event, we could see Google running a little quicker to push this one though.
