Reporter Greg Sandoval joins today's podcast to talk about a deal YouTube is reportedly working out with Sony Pictures' online video division. While YouTube has a huge user base, it's still way behind its competitors in the digital movie field. However, the deal could signal to other movie studios that YouTube is ready to work with Hollywood on copyrighted content. If the deal goes through and proves successful, Greg says, YouTube could give Hulu and other digital media companies a run for their money.
