When it comes to movie rentals, we’ve been focused on adding as many of your favorite movies as possible. Today we’re pleased to announce a new licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures which will bring nearly 500 new movie titles to YouTube and Google Play over the next few weeks to people in the U.S. and Canada.

Whether you're a fan of a five-time Oscar winning movie about a boy’s adventures in Paris, everyday vehicles that change into terrifying robots, a charming high school slacker who takes a day off from school, or the most perfect mafia trilogy ever made, YouTube and Google Play will have what you’re looking for thanks to Paramount.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, Paramount has been responsible for some of the most memorable films in cinema history. With the addition of Paramount, we now have five of the six major studios and over ten independent movie studios offering nearly 9,000 movies for rent to millions of people around the world. It’s still early days for us, and we’ll continue adding new titles and expanding our service to more countries this year.

Many of these movies are available today, and the rest will be added to YouTube and Google Play over the next few months. So grab your popcorn, sit back and press play.
