YouTube reached a new deal with Walt Disney on movie rentals


Video hosting YouTube continues the planned transformation, trying to leave a chaotic set of home videos with cats, kids and other lovely things, and it wants to get the status of the service provider that offers really high-quality content. Now Google are negotiating with many companies trying to get the new quality content for YouTube. It has already been done really a lot, and recently Walt Disney company has joined the list of YouTube partners.

Now you can watch the regular and animation movies on YouTube which rights belonged to Walt Disney. It is true that at first all content will be available only to the western users, but it is unclear when residents of other countries will be able to watch these films and cartoons. Walt Disney will provide old movies and cartoons, as well as the new products. In addition, they plan to place an extra content, like coverage from the shooting areas, and more. All this will be available online for fee. Namely, there will be used the usual payment system for the right to watch any video materials. By the way, among other materials will be available for rental the content from Disney, Disney-Pixar and DreamWorks Studios.

It is worth noting that Walt Disney does not just provide existing content for YouTube, but it also creates new materials specifically for this service. In addition, Walt Disney hopes to raise the popularity of own websites on the web by teamwork with YouTube. Until now, the company was not zealously engaged in the development of its services and resources, and now according to the Walt Disney management, it is time to do it.

It is a fact that the company owns about a third of assets of video hosting Hulu, which has the wide popularity in the USA. The collaboration with YouTube will help Walt Disney to become even more competitive against other companies that make the video content. Well, it is just a great advantage for all users, as far as they can watch on the web whatever they want. There is a disadvantage for the people from the CIS countries, because it is not clear when Walt Disney will be available on YouTube. However, there are other options.
