The announcement confirms rumors from April that YouTube intended to launch an on-demand movie service with content from Sony, Warner, Universal and Lionsgate. YouTube’s new roster of films will go live Monday. The video service will also be hosting movie reviews and behind-the-scenes movie extras typically found in DVD and Blu-ray releases.
