Huge change to YouTube adds Hollywood movies and top TV shows to the app | The Sun

YOUTUBE wants to become a one-stop destination for all your favourite TV and movies so you don't have to go anywhere else.

The Google-owned app has revealed a massive new project that brings full length content from more than 30 major producers directly into YouTube.

It'll make YouTube more like a cable or satellite bundle of the future.

Apple and Amazon have long offered something similar through their products.

Paramount, AMC and Showtime are among the roster of big name partners.

Of course, you'll have to pay for the privilege.

But you can sign-up to any directly within YouTube to make life easier – and YouTube is hoping its massive user base will make the idea a success.

You can even post comments, like or dislike – but a view count won't be on display.
