Google Play Movies rolls out in 10 new Middle Eastern countries and Vietnam

It's always a happy day when one of Google Play's entities rolls out to new countries because it means more users will be able to benefit from the entertainment options that were available to others before them.

But today we're celebrating because Google Play Movies has officially landed in Lebanon and 10 other countries. All of them are Middle Eastern, except for Vietnam — Chào! Here is the full list:

Google Play Carrier Billing Comes To Vietnam And Kuwait

Direct carrier billing is one of the easiest ways users can buy apps, games, and other content on the Play Store. In countries where credit cards aren't readily accessible, where gift cards haven't been circulated, and where other methods of payments are either unavailable or not so attainable for everyone, having your operator handle the transaction for you makes things a lot simpler (although usually a bit more expensive thanks to added fees).

Two countries have recently seen direct carrier billing enabled for them: Vietnam and Kuwait. In Vietnam, the top mobile network Viettel has enabled carrier billing (they even have a friendly how-to on their site), and even though Google's support document doesn't mention it, it looks like the second largest operator MobiFone will do the same soon.
