ADOTAS – Watch out Hulu! Feature films are coming to YouTube possibly as early as December, according to reports. Google has been in talks with Hollywood studios for months, and it looks like at least one major company is in.
The streaming movies will be ad-supported, but some wonder if the movies can be profitable without jamming too many commercials down viewers’ throats. The format for the ads is also a point of contention for some studios, according to cnet. While it’s unclear if Google wants to use prerolls, postrolls or what, some studios want final approval on the format.
