It’s relatively common knowledge that all the good stuff available on the Google Play Store is usually only available in Google’s native America. Occasionally the U.K. gets some love, but the rest of the world is generally left waiting long after features are implemented in the States. When they do arrive elsewhere though, it’s a time for celebration; TV Shows can now be purchased on the Google Play Store in Australia, finally adding the last missing piece to the Google Play Movies & TV puzzle Down Under.
The current library available on Play Movies & TV isn’t that extensive right now, but you will still be able to find your Walking Dead and Game of Thrones fix there, and as far as I can tell, it is also up to date. For around $3 an episode for the newer TV Shows, this might seem a bit expensive for some, but considering how much season boxsets often cost in Australia, you could be forgiven for giving in.
If you somehow have managed to get your hands on a Chromecast in Australia, Play Movies & TV joins as one of your only options of streaming this kind of content to your Chromecast. And if you’ve already bought into the Google ecosystem, this is just another reason to stay with them.
Do you see the need for TV Shows to be on the Play Store? Have you used it before and what are your experiences? Let us know what you think in the comments.
