Play Movies Gains Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound Support On Android TV And Roku

Sound sounds better when it's coming from more directions. Okay, that may not be entirely how audio works, but I never claimed to be an expert in the area. I can say this. When an explosion happens to your left on screen and you hear it come that direction, it's very cool. That's an objective statement of fact.

Since this is the case, Google has added Dolby Digital Plus surround sound support to Android TV and Roku.

Play Movies & TV v3.11 Tells Us How Bundles Will Work With The Family Library [APK Teardown]

The Play Books update from a couple of days ago turned up the first sign of life for the Family Library we've seen since mid-November. At the time, I made a quick prediction that matching strings would pop up fairly soon in Google's other content apps, and Play Movies & TV is the first to follow through. But this wasn't just a mirror image of the same strings, there's actually a bit of new information regarding movies sold as a bundle and seasons of television shows.

In case anybody is curious, this update doesn't have anything in the way of notable new features.

Reminder: Your New Chromecast Came With A Free Play Movies Rental, Use It!

Did you buy the new-and-improved 2015 Chromecast? If so, you may have forgotten that your purchase includes a free movie rental on Google Play Movies, even if you'd already purchased a Chromecast previously (offers are per device, not account - so you get one for each CC you purchased up to a maximum of five). The movie rental offer doesn't apply to Chromecast Audio purchases, in case you were wondering.

The current offer runs until the end of the year (12/31/15), so there's no rush to redeem it. As always, in order to redeem the offer, you'll need to open the Chromecast app on your device or head to cast.google.com/chromecast/offers while on the same network as or nearby your Chromecast device.

[Update: And Singapore] Google Play Movies Now Shows Flicks In Indonesia And Malaysia

Streaming movies from Google Play is rather nice. I sort of scoffed at the feature at first, wondering why I'd want to spend that much money to rent a movie when I could wait and buy a physical copy later. But hey, $3 to $5 really isn't that much compared to watching a film in theaters, and it lets you see a movie much sooner than waiting for the DVD version to drop in price.

The thing is, Play Movies isn't available all over the world.

[Deal Alert] Animated Film 'All Creatures Big And Small' Makes Its US Debut Exclusively On Google Play, And You Can Watch It For Free

Ooops! Noah is gone... but fortunately you can still see what happens to the animals on the Ark. The 3D animated film All Creatures Big and Small is now debuting exclusively in the Play Store, and you can download the HD film in its entirety for free.

Selection_002

This light-hearted movie asks the question of what happened to the animals that didn't make it on board Noah's Ark. It follows Finny and Leah as they try to survive the flood and find safety on the tallest mountain. Meanwhile, their parents attempt to turn the Ark around and rescue their kids. The subject matter may be Biblical, but the tone is hardly preachy.
