The issue seems to "freeze" the last time, but in the background there are feverish consultations between Google and major movie studios of Hollywood.
The latter scenario indicates that users can rent new movies on DVD over $ 5. With this amount, Google will promote the movie on the user's computer through streaming. The price is said to be valid for a new DVD. Apparently, for older movies the cost will be lower.
Google remains silent and does not confirm or contradict the information. Of course, this is quite normal in cases where the talks are ongoing.
While rumors are unfounded and if everything goes in smoothly, the new service should be expected before the end of 2010.
