Apple TV delayed in the UK due to LoveFilm deal?

Having just got off the phone with Apple's UK flagship store on London's Regent Street, inquiring about the availability of the new Apple TV in the UK -- an "informed" store representative told us that Apple's waiting to try and secure a deal with LoveFilm before releasing stock. She said that Apple's newest media box should be available sometime next week. What with Netflix streaming...

YouTube opens video rental store with decent prices, decent selection

Although YouTube has long since given up on its paid download feature, the popular video site has moved on to something bigger and better: movie rentals. You can now grab a 48-hour rental from YouTube for anywhere between 99 cents and $3.99. YouTube's rental library started back in January, when it offered a selection of movies from the Sundance Film Festival, but it's now expanded into all kinds...

YouTube's movie rental test posts dismal profits

YouTube began testing the waters with a movie rental service late last month. Starting small, they offered a collection of five films from the Sundance Film Festival. The movies were offered for ten days to see how users would respond to a paid movie rental service. Charging only $3.99, the films picked up 2,684 views and pulled in only $10,709 total. While the "big guys" in the movie...

Is YouTube going to offer streaming movie rentals?

YouTube's most popular content has always been user-generated, with a lot of self-produced stars making a name for themselves on the site. People go there to watch the latest viral videos, and maybe TV shows that haven't yet been taken down due to copyright. That's why it might sound strange that YouTube is reportedly getting into the business of streaming Hollywood movies, a la Hulu or Netflix....

BookSwim: just like the public library, but $24 per month

BookSwim wants to be Netflix for books. That's right, they want you to pay a monthly fee in order to receive 5 to 11 books at a time via the mail....

Netflix Mobile: Your movie queue on the go

I'm not currently a Netflix subscriber, but I loved the service when I was (and even moreso for reintroducing the word "queue" into the American lexicon). This week Netflix launched Netflix Mobile, which lets you do the most important tasks that you can do on the standard Netflix web site, like viewing and changing your queue and browsing new movies, but from your mobile phone or PDA. I can see...

Guba lowers prices for online movies

Online digital video store Guba has dropped its prices drastically on rentals and movie purchases in an effort to test the demand and impact their company can have. Gubas Video-On-Demand 24 hour rental will drop to $0.99 for new titles, previously $2.99, and Download-To-Own titles will be $9.99 for new releases, which seem very reasonable. Guba has a large library of free viewing movies and videos...
