  • More movies apparently slated to be added in the future

In a new move that could offer lots to cheer about as far as consumption of quality content is concerned, YouTube incorporated huge number of full-length films (YouTube movies) that users can watch for free. The only apparent downside here is that these display ads.

As per an AdAge report, quoted by TechCrunch, the films in the list include a combination of both classics as well as recents ranging from Rocky, The Terminator, to Agent Cody Banks. Viewers should be able to watch complete films with ads appearing in the form of pop-ups.

Viewers can check out YouTube, especially the customized “Free to Watch” sub-section which should essentially contain the newly added free to watch Hollywood feature films numbering 100.

Earlier, viewers bought and even rented films on YouTube in the YouTube Movies category. With the latest move, YouTube could potentially pose some competition to the likes of Netflix as far as content consumption is concerned.

As per AdAge, which quotes Rohit Dhawan who is Director at YouTube’s Product Management Division, there would be more full-length feature films added to the Free to Watch section in the near future.

Hence, viewers could check out and let us know whether they have been able to check out the free Hollywood movies.

Now, with an increased penetration in LTE connectivity, YouTube’s free to watch section could very well get a boost in terms of sheer number of viewers and subscribers.

In related developments, Vodafone India has apparently been offering 100% cashback on select prepaid recharges in multiple telecom circles in India. As per available information, the Rs 399, Rs 458, and the Rs 509 recharge plan availed through the MyVodafone app are eligible for receiving a Rs 50 discount coupon that can be used to obtain discounts on future recharges.

Vodafone prepaid mobile subscribers can check out the MyVodafone app to evaluate if the above recharge plans are eligible for the new cashback offers. All these recharge plans offer internet access amounting to a maximum of 1.4 GB in a day with unlimited calls and text messages. In regions without LTE bandwidths, 3G packs should be available with other offers not specifically the full cashback plans.
