YouTube recently announced the signing of a deal with MGM to add some 600 titles – including classic films like The Godfather, Rain Man and Rocky, as well as newer releases such as Transformers and Hugo – to its online video site and the Google Play store, for availability to consumers in the U.S. and Canada.
Bytemobile expects this expansion of content to generate increased video traffic on mobile operators’ networks.
