Pay to view some movie videos on youtube
Youtube started to feature MovieSpotlights in partnership with Sundance Film Festivals! They are featuring the films from 2010 and 2009 Sundance Film Festivals. And you can access some certain videos by paying around $5 dollars and you decide if you want to purchase it. I saw some movie features in their site and most of them are good indie films. The partnership was done to test on how the users will respond to paid content on the site, and this could be a new revenue stream for the web video giant. USA Today said that the move is helping independent filmmakers find distribution avenues for their films. The movies will be shown without ads, which would be an aesthetic disaster for any director who chose to put his creation online.
