The Sundance Channel will make 18 feature films and three series available for sale or rent on Google Video.

Google will charge $3.99 for a 24-hour pass or $9.99 for outright purchase of feature films. For series, Google will charge $2.99 to $3.99 per episode.

“We are excited to offer fans of Sundance Channel’s original series and feature films an innovative way to watch our content,” said Christopher Barry, Sundance Channel VP, digital media and business strategy. “We look forward to increasing our offering of high-quality independent entertainment to reach those viewers seeking something different.”

Google, the world’s biggest Web-search company, is expanding its video offerings to compete with free viral video sites and Apple Computer Inc.’s iTunes store, the most-used audio and video download service.
