Hasn't Youtube already been doing the same thing for movies? It will be interesting to see how shift into the concept for TV shows. The competition for streaming space seems to be getting more brutal and there's a lot of overlap with offerings.

@joeyhirendernath yeah, they already have movies and are working on licensing from streaming services so people can pay for "channels" on YouTube and watch their content inside the YT interface. Lots of stuff going on with YouTube.
