    I just noticed in my TV & Movies update it shows as one of the sources to watch a movie is from YouTube.

    For example here are my sources for watching Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)

    Amazon Instant Video - View details - $3.99
    YouTube - Watch free preview - $3.99
    YouTube - Watch free preview - $4.99 HD

    It used to just show Amazon for me.

    Though I'm not sure what Watch Free preview is supposed to mean.

    Anybody else?

    Ok, so I just did a search for this movie from the Movies and TV App. The free preview is to let you know that there is a trailer available to watch before you make your purchase. I just rented this movie and stopped it from playing as soon as it started. I will save this for the weekend and it now shows up in the rental section of the you tube app. I am not sure if this works for everyone as last week I side loaded an app for this.

    Yes I just tried Big Daddy and it is free because it is a crackle film. It also plays on chrome for me. Cool because crackle now shows up on the TV and Movies App.

    Also, add a free movie to your queue and it just works! So cool!
