Google continues to add titles to its online catalog, this time, thanks to an agreement with Paramount to offer 500 of its movies through YouTube and Google Play.
The deal was announced by Mountain View, and is currently limited to the US and Canada, and is expected to reach other territories in 2012.
According to Google, its platforms already offer more than 9,000 movies through deals with Disney, Sony, Universal, Warner Bros. and now Paramount Pictures.
The new additions include The Godfather 1,2 and 3; Hugo and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, among others.
Renting these movies will set you back between US$ 2.99 and US$ 3.99, and a dollar extra for HD titles. Users will have 30 days to view them and 48 hours from the moment they hit play.
"Paramount Pictures is one of the largest studios in the world. We are excited to be able to add 500 titles from their movie catalog. We hope to continue adding new titles in the future," said Malik Ducars, content director at YouTube.
