Google just sealed the deal with Twentieth Century Fox to brings its titles to Play Movies and YouTube. This means shows like Family Guy, Modern Family, Glee, and more; as well as movies such as X-Men, Ice Age, and Black Swan will all be making their way to the Play Store for rental and purchase. Yay!

To celebrate this new union, Fox released Prometheus in HD to Play Movies this morning - a full three weeks ahead of the movie's release on Blu-Ray and DVD.

With the addition of Fox, Google is now working with all six major film studios, as well as several independent studios to bring even more movies and TV shows to Google Play and YouTube.

      Two stars too many in my opinion. Unless it was supposed to be a comedy. Because I laughed my ass off at this movie.

  • Joey Dobbertin

    If I can stream this to my Xbox some how through all-play I may do this.

    • michael interbartolo

      for the Xbox you can purchase it via Vudu. it will be in your Ultraviolet account for access via other devices also though Vudu doesn't have an android app. M-Go is supposed to support android and UV so that might work down the road.

    • ari_free

  • Simon_K

    How about movie rentral in other countries? How hard can it really be?

  • Dan

    Did they change something so that you can output google play movies through the HDMI out? If not, then what does it matter?

    Neither I nor anybody I know would buy promethius for $15 to watch it exclusively on a phone or tablet.
