As long as Google Play Movies has existed, there has been one major problem - you can't delete movies or TV episodes from your library. That might seem like a minor issue, since it doesn't cost users anything to keep content, but it has become more pressing since Google Play added support for 4K movies.

UHD content now available through Google Play Movies in the UK

Late last year, Google gave us a nice early Christmas present in the form of 4K video on Google Play. But unfortunately, that gift had a region restriction. Only those of us in the US and Canada were able to pick up media in the expanded resolution, leaving other markets with just HD content. Now people in the UK can get in on the UHD fun, too.

[Update: Get your movie while it's hot] Deal alert: Amityville: The Awakening will launch exclusively on Google Play on October 12 for free

Following the exclusive launch of Peter Dinklage's Rememory on Play Movies, Google doesn't seem to be slowing down and is already at it with another exclusive for its movies and TV service. This time, forget the drama, we're full on horror/thriller/gore with Amityville: The Awakening.

I am not a fan of the genre — I have one heart, why torture it by watching this stuff? — so I had to watch the trailer with one and a half eyes closed.

Movies Anywhere aims to unify your movie collection into a single digital library

Disney's Movies Anywhere has just launched a new service that allows you to store and access all your movies in one place. It has support from 5 major Hollywood studios, but more importantly also from 4 digital retailers where users already have movie libraries. Content from Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, and Vudu can be brought into the Movies Anywhere app, which is great for anyone with a fragmented collection spanning more than one of those services. Now, you'll only ever need to use one app again.

After Google's event finished yesterday, a stream of app updates began rolling out.

Google Play Movies seems to be moving to match Apple's new $19.99 UHD pricing

A number of new releases on Google Play Movies have seen their prices for UHD copies lowered substantially, and you've probably got Apple's new 4K version of Apple TV to thank. When Apple announced it would charge the same price for UHD as HD movies (with in-place upgrades - something Play is not offering, sadly), it was probably inevitable that other streaming movie platforms would see their prices drop, as well. Amazon's already doing it, so Play Movies is just playing catch-up here.

Play Movies began offering 4K content a little over a year ago. While not all movies have had their pricing adjusted to the new scheme, you can probably expect that most major studios will make the switch over time, particularly when it comes to new releases.
