YouTube adds 400 movies in UK YouTube has started YouTube's Movies in the UK this week, adding 400 movies to the catalog right at launch.
The movies will either be free and ad-supported or on-demand, costing a certain fee to rent or buy.

YouTube is making the movies available thanks to agreements with Sony Pictures, MGM and a revenue share with the UK video service Blinkbox.

165 movies from Blinkbox will be ad-supported, and the service will share ad revenue. The titles normally cost 1.99 per rental.

The move follows YouTube's slow and delicate expansion into online rentals in the United States, which has so far been a disappointment.
