Rental initiative will open to users in the US and Canada.

Google has partnered with film studio MGM to expand its streaming efforts across Google Play and YouTube with a new movie library. The deal will bring titles such as The Terminator, Robocop and Rocky to the app store and streaming video site.

MGM will contribute over 600 titles in the coming weeks, as the studio becomes the sixth to join Google's streaming project.

The rental platform will only be open to users in US and Canada, though it's likely it will expand internationally, given Google's global footprint.

The launch comes following our report that Americans are streaming more films online, than they're watching on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray combined.
