Google has been working hard trying to find a good way to make money of the huge amount of raw users that Youtube gets each month. The problem is that many advertisers are weary of advertising on video where they can't control the quality or message of the content.

YouTube is looking to start a movie rental service sort of like PPV according to reports. CNET News reports that YouTube parent Google is in talks with major Hollywood studios to access the movie catalog on a PPV basis.

Reports peg the streaming price for the flicks at $5 each. This would make YouTube and Apple direct competitors and take YouTube into the streaming realm with Netflix and other offerings as well. Exactly when this deal might happen is unknown.
