Google Inc. has announced that select markets in Europe will be able to gain access to Google Play movies, TV and music.
After announcing last month that Google TV users in US will be able to access all that lovely stuff it has posted on its Google TV’s Google+ page that movies and music will be available in the U.K., Germany and France starting on November 13th.
According to the post by Google “Those of you in the U.K, France, Germany, Italy and Spain will be able to purchase music from the Google Play store and add up to 20,000 songs—for free—from your existing collection to the cloud for streaming to your Android devices or web browser.”
In today’s post however, the search giant apologized for not including all the countries that it had promised would get the platform on the said date.
I don’t know if Google is facing a roadblock with its earlier plans or not, the countries its referring to is Australia and Canada.
TechCrunch has given a little background which I wasn’t aware of and that is that “Google has had a tough time rolling out movies, music and TV to its Google TV devices this year due to issues licensing content from studios and labels. In June, the company had pre-announced its intentions to add more content to its platform through a software update – saying that those new sections were “coming soon” – but it wasn’t until October that the updates actually began to roll out here in the U.S.”
