Netflix has seen a lot of angry customers of late, mostly due to their new pricing plans, which separate the physical disc rentals from streaming video. Recently, Netflix also lost access to more than 1,000 Disney titles after failing to renew a deal with distributor Starz. Now Netflix is facing additional pressure from YouTube, which just signed a deal to offer Disney and Pixar rentals.
While the deal initially only providers YouTube with a few movies, like “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Cars 2”, Google has already promised that hundreds will be coming to the site in the near future. Additionally, YouTube will offer up “extras” from Disney like behind-the-scenes clips.
Disney and Pixar fans will be able to rent both on the Web and through the YouTube app on Google TV.
