Google just pushed an update to the Play Movies & TV app with one big change – support for Play Movies in a ton of new countries. We count 37 in total, but the app's changelog says there are over 40. Either way, that's a lot of new places to get video from Google Play. That's in addition to the big Music expansion today. [Update: We spotted Aruba as well. It's been added to the list.]

The selection and availability of rentals will obviously vary from one country to the next (thanks, complex international copyright law). If you live in one of the above territories, the Play Store should show the new content now. Just make sure to update your Play Movies app.

  • Bradley Ruiz

    this means chomecast is going global next

  • herbivoor

    Come on Belgium...

  • René Simonsen

    I just installed the app on my device, but when I open it I get a message that it's not available in my country. I'm from Denmark.

    I think I recall something about having to clear some cache or something when books was released, but I don't remember exactly what it was. I'll tinker around and post back.

    • René Simonsen

      Force stop and clear cache of Google Play Store did the trick! Maybe you should add it to your post, I imagine others will run into it too.

        Same problem here in Finland.

  • My name is….

    you have Greece in title but not in the list!!

    PS

    Im greek.

    PS2
    FUCK ME DEAAAAAAAAAAAAAD, if its finally here!!!!!!!!!

    Ps3

    Cant install the app, says not compatible. Is it because of device, or country?

    • http://www.greeceandroid.gr/ John D

      Greece only got Play Music afaik.

      • My name is….

        You are correct.

        At least they should change the title now.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Sorry, you're right. Greece crept in here from the Music post.

  • Swedish

    I never thought I'd see the day!

  • kuk

    I am from Sweden and i am very happy now ☺

    • Teodor Axel Johan Jönsson

      Me too

    • hennnn

      Instead of Piratebay you can now go to Google Play. :p

      • silaslenz

        Piratebay still has a better selection. And Netflix is cheaper.

  • rfrost

    This is obviously for the global release of ChromeCast (which is a week away) which will plug directly into all the media released today - well done Google. ChromeCast will OWN the other media streamers within the year I am sure of it.

    • gard

      Yup! A smart move by Google!

    • RajivSK

      Well I just checked the prices and I'm not cancelling my Netflix subscription just yet... Almost every single movie is (way) more expensive than a full month of watching as many movies and shows as I like. Not too competitive just yet imo.

      • http://www.smsnetwork.org/ Mikael Jakobsson

        Am totaly agree pay a monthly fee is alot bettre that pay singel movies.
        But am whish that its coming to google to like the All access to the music.

  • Karlo

    No Croatia.
    Oh great!

    • w3by

      Or Slovenia.

      • Karlo

        Seems they dont give a dime about balkan countrys even Slovenia and Croatia is in EU.

      • http://plus.ly/zsolt prwnd

        Or Hungary

    • Pierogi

      Or Poland

  • redmafia

    MUSIC is live for Greece! Movies & TV still says incompatible

  • http://danielbrierton.ie Daniel Brierton

    No Ireland. :(

    • Alan Shannon

      Guess we really are just a tax break... ;'(

  • Huton Gergö

    And where the hell is the rest of europe. hahaha google play movie in canbodea

  • Rodrigo Ramirez

    Finally Guatemala!

  • Calvin Uijlen

    It seems a bit expensive, but still, well done Google! :)

  • http://si97.com/ Saif

    It's funny how Google said, "Piracy is an availability problem" few days ago and their own services are not available everywhere yet. iTunes has better availability. They couldn't even rol out to all EU countries yet so I don't see any hope for Middle East.

    • PhilNelwyn

      They said that precisely because their services are not available everywhere.
      Do you think that it's their choice?
      Do you think that they don't want to sell as much as possible?
      I believe that it was addressed to countries / movie studios that don't want to sign the deal.

  • eSche

    That's so fucking stupid! Why would Switzerland be left out when Sweden is getting a piece of the cake, it's literally the same fucking country!!!

    • Bjajjull

      lol

  • Stella

    Awesome!! So happy my country got included too!

  • Cristian Ugalde

    I was like "oh more countries, of course mine isn't there" and then I saw Costa Rica. I'm more happy than I should.

  • DoubleP90

    I was happy too when Play Movies came to Italy, then I saw they were only in Italian -.-

    • EowynCarter

      Ah, i was wondering about that. Same in France; we can't chose to watch the original version :(
      It's a shame, really.

  • djakdekiel

    Poland, Poland, Poland WHEEEENNN

    • Marek Pełka

      kurwa mać!

    • pffffffffff

      kurwa, znowu nie ma

      • Adrian

        Patrze na listę i teraz wiem,że Google ma wyjebke na PL skoro takie małe państwa dodali a PL nie! Muzyke też rozszerzyli,ale oczywiście PL nie dostanie dostępu.

        • mrblur

          Jesteś kretynem jeśli myślisz że oni dobrowolnie zlewają nasz kraj. Wiń ZAIKS i ustawodawstwo. Idę o zakład że gdyby mogli sensownie sprzedawać u nas audio i wideo bez dopłacania do tego interesu to by to dawno wprowadzili.

    • Meme

      Aruba, Cape Verde, Ivory Coast... Where the f*ck is that?
      And still no Poland? WTF Google?!

  • Alan Shannon

    No Ireland... What the hell Google, you've no problem using our country as a tax break but you won't bring your services here. We're the EU HQ and we don't have full Google services, ridiculous.

  • WestFiasco

    I can't wait until I can freely gain access to paid apps and maybe services where I live.

  • winartosinwe

    When will Singapore be included in the list?

  • nick

    seriously no Philippines? the only reason I pirate is because I have no means to download content legally.

  • daas88

    I'm from Venezuela and this is useless until they charge in our local coin. Dollars are expensive and the government limits how much we can get :/

  • Vincentius Phang

    help, i cant see my country :(

  • Thomas Cai Jinzhan

    C'mon google, give Asia some love please........Calling from Singapore here!

  • frafri

  • Leonardo Benveniste

    I can't believe Argentina is the only south American country left out....this just confirms the shitty country I live in....o know it's not Google's fault, I'm 100% sure is my dumb country's rules

    • Eric

      You forgot Brazil. We know that you don't like us. ;)

      • Leonardo Benveniste

        No I didn't, Brazil had movies for a while now. Up until yesterday it was the only South American country that had it...
        It has nothing to do that I don't like you ;)

  • Nasko Hristov

    Nice work, Google keep making available movies where 80% of the population doesn't have an internet.

  • Luca

    No Switzerland.. :(

  • mirekk

    Smart move, Big G, I'm sure you'll make more money in Benin and Burkina Faso than you would make in Poland :P Thanks for nothing...
