    YouTube to offer film rentals in the UK

    Video site YouTube has started a movie rental service in the UK.

    Blockbusters such as The Dark Knight and classics including The Birds can be watched via the site. In total, about 1,000 movies have been made available.

    New releases will cost £3.49 to rent and library titles £2.49. Users have 30 days to begin watching a film, and 48 hours to finish it once they start.

    The UK is the third territory to get the movie rental service after the US and Canada.

      Bit steep considering you can buy loads of DVDs via Amazon for less than £2

      They also have to compete with Lovefilm who are offering a small starter package for £4.99 for 2 movies a month.
