You may already be renting your movies from the Amazon run service Lovefilm like me, but if you are looking for an alternative or don’t use Lovefilm you may find YouTube’s newly launched movie rental service, the service will be available from today, and accessible by heading over to

From the service you will have access to over 1,000 feature films, costing anywhere from free to £3.49 per film, but this may increase over time, YouTube commented on the new service with:

“We’ve got some cracking films to keep everyone entertained through the upcoming winter months and beyond. From blockbusters like The Dark Knight and Reservoir Dogs, to new releases such as Hanna, Fast Five, and Red Riding Hood, and even British classics like Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”

After purchasing a film you will get 48 hours to watch the film on the computer, Google TV as well as Andriod tablets and smartphones. Personally, I prefer LoveFilm as it’s a lot cheaper and has a lot more films available.
