Google Play TV shows are now available in their fourth country worldwide today. Now Australia joins the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan in being able to watch TV shows through Google Play. So now you have both TV shows and Movies available to rent and buy.
So now Australian Google Play users have access to almost all of Google Play, including Apps, Books, Magazines, and Music (including All Access). It’s good to see Australian users get parity with users in other countries.
TV shows are usually very hard to get rights to in varying countries, so the fact that it has been slow to roll out isn’t surprising. Hopefully over the course of the year, more countries will continue to get access to TV shows in Google Play.
