Google Play music and movies for Google TV coming to UK in mid-November

Google will be bringing Google Play’s music and movie offerings to the UK. As of 13 November, Google TV owners will be able to use their set-top boxes and enabled TVs to download more multimedia content from the Google Play store.

The announcement came in a post on +Google, where it was also revealed that the service will be made available in Germany and France, though customers in Canada and Australia will have to wait a little bit longer to get music and movies via Google Play.

"We're sorry for an earlier post that said we're launching in more countries on 11/13, but stay tuned as we're bringing Google Play to more countries all the time," said Google in the post.

The announced service will not extend to Google’s range of Android-powered smartphones and tablets, as full access to Google’s music and movie library remains reserved for the US.

It is believed that licensing restrictions placed on the tech titan by the content copyright holders is impeding the service's global rollout.
