by: Adam KoueiderDecember 18, 2013


While Google Play TV shows is still limited to the US , UK and Japan, Google Play Movies is now available in 13 more countries. Google Play content access has slowly been expanding and Google Play Movies is now available in 27 countries.

The latest countries to receive access to Google Play Movies are:

  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Botswana
  • Fiji
  • Belize
  • Hong Kong
  • Jamaica
  • Nepal
  • Zimbabwe
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Tanzania
  • Sri Lanka
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • New Zealand

If you live in one of the countries with access to Google Play Movies, you’ll now be able to purchase or rent movies and watch them on your Android tablet or phone, laptop or desktop.

Will you be using Google Play Movies?

    Patience is a virtue. Still no Play Movie in my country.

    I live in SRI LANKA and yes finally at least Google play movies are here……. BUT situation here is way different, people don’t pay for their media content. they download the content from torrents or direct download sites, anyways it is a pleasure that google noted that we exist.

    ZIMBABWE AND BOTSWANA!!! and not SOUTH AFRICA….biggest economy in AFRICA!

    • Adam Koueider

      There are other factors in play here. Google would certainly want its content in as many countries, but it takes a lot of time (and usually a lot of money) to work with Copyright holders to sell in different countries.

      Google is probably working on bringing Play Movies to South Africa, it’s probably just taking a little more time as they work on it.

    and with the internet speeds we have, it would have been very funny if this thing was actually true

    • saurjk

      it’s actually already available in Nepal, i saw a screenshot of a friend’s phone. However, with the internet speeds there, not many will use it… sadly…

  • ShawnReg

    So I installed the Google Play Movies app and it still says “Play Movies is not yet available in your country”. I’m from Nepal..

    • Adam Koueider

      It might take a day or two for the update with support for Play Movies to roll out. Hang tight!

    • saurjk
