No one's going to confuse most of the titles that headline YouTube's recently-launched section of free, ad-supported movies with anything that resembles a Best Picture all-star list.

Now YouTube is offering you an alternative to watching a garbage copy of the movie that only takes up half of the screen because it was uploaded illegally.

The reasons users are supporting the change are obvious; everyone likes free movies.

If you are looking for something to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, YouTube is showing some top-tier Hollywood films in their entirety, but you do have to sit through some commercials to watch them for free.

Sponsorship will also depend on how far movie studios are willing and able to adapt to the growing market of digital streaming for films.

YouTube has just rolled out dozens of free-to-watch full-length feature films on its platform.

As AdAge reports, YouTube made a decision to introduce free, ad-supported movie streams because it's what users want, with Rohit Dhawan, director of product management at YouTube, stating "We saw this opportunity based on user demand, beyond just offering paid movies".

YouTube says that it started the ad-supported movies due to demand from viewers and that it saw the ad spots as an opportunity for advertisers. The same channel also has several more recent releases, and current-run TV shows, which can be rented or purchased directly from the site.
