YouTube & MGM Debut Over 100 Movies Streaming For Free

YouTube recently cut a deal with MGM studios and has released more than 100 titles onto their platform. The movies are ad-supported, meaning you can stream them for free, so long as you don’t mind occasional commercial breaks. Otherwise, you can shell out the $9.99 a month for an ad-free experience.

Among the multiple titles available are the original Terminator, the Rocky series, Legally Blonde, and the classic Pink Panther films. It’s unclear if YouTube, which is owned by Google, will cut similar deals with other studios to expand their selection. Considering that almost two billion people use YouTube a month, it seems that more would want to get in on the action.

You can find the titles in the Free To Watch section of YouTube’s Movies and Shows channel.
