Well, apparently full length films are coming to YouTube a bit sooner than the end of the year: YouTube and MGM announced today a partnership to show MGM’s full length movies and television shows on the most popular video site on the web.
But will these just be their straight-to-video or B-movies, or popular blockbusters? New hits or old favorites? A mixture, it sounds like, as the NYT reports:
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios will kick off the partnership by posting episodes of its decade-old “American Gladiators” program to YouTube, along with full-length action films like “Bulletproof Monk” and “The Magnificent Seven” and clips from popular movies like “Legally Blonde.” These will be free to watch, with ads running alongside the video.
