YouTube Adding 3,000 Movie Rentals

Confirming last month’s reports, YouTube confirmed it’s adding 3,000 new movies to its little-known rental service.

YouTube made the announcement on its blog, and its movie rental site now offers the likes of the latest Harry Potter flick, The Green Hornet and How Do You Know for $3.99 for 24 hours.

Do you think the convenience of renting new movies on your computer is worth paying more than it costs to rent from the likes of Redbox?
