Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 new buyers, remember to get your free Google Play content

Samsung Nexus 10

In case you happen to have purchased a new Nexus 4 smartphone or a new Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 tablet, you should know that you’re entitled to some free content for your shiny new devices.

We’re not talking about the $25 Google Play credit that was offered with initial Nexus 7 purchases. That ended a few months ago, so now it’s time for a new promo for Nexus buyers. Depending on what device you purchased and where you’re located you’ll get different content, but it’s all still free of charge.

Nexus 4 owners get to download and/or stream Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the series premiere of Falling Skies (2-hour episode) and an episode of Planet Earth.

Nexus 7/10 buyers will get Ice Age and Planet Earth only, while all devices have access to some free music and magazines from Play Music and Play Magazines, respectively.

Naturally, if you purchased a mix of devices, namely Nexus 4 and a Nexus tablet, you’ll get access to all of the above.

We’ll add that this offer is available in the U.S. and may change depending on where you get your Nexus from. In fact, if you’re reading this from other countries, let us know what free content you’re able to download from your local Google Play Store on your Nexus gadgets!

  • Mo

    Are you sure? it wants my money to let me download them
    I bought Nexus 4 recently

  • AndroidBrian

    Yeah I noticed I had Transformers 3 purchased. Couldn’t Google hook it up with a good movie?

    • Matthew

      At least it is not a BAD movie. Also I am sure they just asked around for partners for a ton of movies and these are the ones that was agreed upon, and a movie producer probably was not going to give out their popular movies for free, and Google does not really have the money to give a ton of free things with their hardware when they already sell them on low profit margins, you know?
      But at least we get something, which is nice.

        LOL. Not a bad movie? Maybe the worst movie Ive ever seen. Fell asleep twice watching it the first time. Tried watching it again and just couldnt bear to make it to the end

        • Matthew

          lol, dont complain to me about that if you hated it

          You see, this is the problem with people on the Internet. First, you guys bash an operating system that you don’t like based on your personal opinions, and now you guys are bashing movies based on your personal opinions. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean that people don’t like it too.
