MGM movies on Youtube

November 11, 2008

YouTube will show full-length television shows and films from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s archives in its latest step to boost advertising revenue by adding professional programing.

The new partnerships put YouTube in more direct competition with Hulu, the online video site owned by News Corp and NBC Universal. YouTube in October forged a similar partnership with CBS to run full-length archived shows, including “Star Trek,” “Young and the Restless” and “Beverly Hills 90210.”
