Youtube to stream TV episodes at a rate of 1.99 USD – Rumor

According to All Things Digital, Google is currently in negotiations with the networks and studios to make such a service available to users of its video-sharing site in 2010.

Fox News also reports the same, ie., Google is negotiating with the media industry to stream individual TV episodes via YouTube, for a fee.

Youtube allow us to view some TV episode now only but ads are there. So if this rumor comes real, then it means TV episode without ads.

So I dont think its just a rumor, but still its not confirmed. Anyway I don’t know whether to say this is good or this is bad. This is because, Youtube will not allow us to download and keep it legally. But we are paying for it 1.99 USD per TV episode. There are people who want to keep it to watch it over and over not everyone, but believe me there are people.

Well this is not a good news for iTunes. The thing about iTunes is they allow us to download what we are paying for. Will Youtube add an option like this. MAn then this is going to be huge. I mean REAL huge.

The sources say negotiations are still in preliminary stages but that both sides “seem optimistic”.
