(Newser) – While clips of cute kittens, backyard wrestling, and teenage lip-syncers are fascinating, YouTube has decided to beef up its online offerings with something a little ... lengthier: It added 3,000 real movies to rent yesterday. The movie service includes new titles and classics from Hollywood, Bollywood, and even Nigeria's Nollywood. Films cost between 99 cents and $3.99, and users have 30 days to watch their rentals.
