Limitations of Google Play Movies – Where Can You Access Google Play?
The TV section of Google Play Movies remains restricted to a very select few countries, namely the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan, so this expansion is somewhat limited. Nonetheless, this is great news for a number of countries that aren’t usually the first to get served by the streaming media community.
Previously supported Google Play Store availability was limited to the United Kingdom, United States as well as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, India, Japan, South Korea, & Spain.
