"In Google's test, videos from a small number of providers who had initially charged fees for downloads will be offered free with advertising. These include Mr. Magoo cartoons and episodes of 'The Charlie Rose Show.'Let's watch this experiment.
The advertising takes the form of a banner that appears above the video, with a graphic image and a link to the advertisers' site. At the end of the video, a 15- to 30-second commercial for the advertiser is played. The test involves advertisers including Netflix and Pepsi.
