YouTube is a web 2.0 platform that was founded in 2005 and is now super famous for the fact that into it are shared and published every day huge amounts of multimedia content of all kinds. But did you know that you can also rent and buy movies on YouTube?
The procedure is simple. First of all you need a Google account that you will use to access the YouTube platform. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one directly from the YouTube homepage by clicking on “Use another account” and then “Create an account”. After that you will need a credit/prepaid card or a Paypal account with which to proceed to payment, after choosing the movie you want to buy or rent.
With the computer, if you search YouTube on Internet and, once the page is opened, click the drop-down menu in the upper left near the logo, you can select “Films” under the heading “More from YouTube“. Here, under “Browse” you can search for the title of your interest and once you click on the movie, you can enter the payment details. While in the “Purchased” section, near the “Browse” section, you will find all the movies you have purchased or rented previously.
With a mobile device, instead, you have to open the YouTube app and click on “Collection” at the bottom right; then tap on “Your films” and you will always find the “Browse” section, to search for a movie to buy or rent, and the “Purchased” section in which you will find all the movies already purchased.
The films are divided into categories and this allows the user to speed up the search, in addition to the search bar at the top of the page. Among the categories, to help you for the choice among the many proposals, we find: Recommended movies for you, Top selling, Best sellers, European movies, Horror, Comedy, Drama, and many more. In addition, below the trailer of the chosen movie is the tab section with all the details such as plot, release date, duration of the film, audio language and subtitles, actors, etc…
