Google Play Music and Video come to Google TV for more countries November 13th

When Google originally announced the movies and music sections of its content store would be headed for Google TV devices many were displeased to learn that the US would be the only region included. It seems the US is always the starting ground for Google (it’s their home country, after all) but others tend to be invited in no time.

This instance was no different as Google, via Google+, has announced the addition of support for more countries. Those in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada and Australia will soon be able to rent and buy movies and TV, as well as buy music for playback through their Google TV devices.

The service won’t be available until November 13th — the landing date for the new line of Nexus devices headed our way — but it’s nice to know that more of our friends will finally be able to enjoy the finer things in digital life.

The odd thing is that some of these countries still don’t support Google Music on smartphones and tablets. We’ve heard that the UK will be getting the service in full starting November 13th before, but haven’t been able to dig up such confirmation for others. Perhaps those services will finally be opening up to folks inhabiting those places — one can dream, no?

Regardless, there’s the news that should make many of you happy. We’re less than a week away from November 13th so just mark it on your calendar or keep it in the back of your mind for safe-keeping.

    I sometimes feel like I am the only one who cares about updates to Google TV. I really wonder if there were going to be any announcements at the event that was recently cancelled. Hulu really needs to happen so I can stop streaming through other sources like Wii and PS3.

    Any idea if this will update the Google Play Store on Android Phones as well? Right now in Canada we have access to Apps, Movies, Magazines and Books through the Play Store on our Android device. We don’t have access to Google Play Music.

    I wish they would come out with a Nexus Google TV device. I tried the 200.00 Sony one (200.00 freaking dollars) and didn’t like it. The co star is always sold out.

    Additionally, it would be silly for them to activate Music in Canada on the TV and not the phones and tablets….. right?

      It would be silly, indeed. Hopefully we’ll know more come November 13th.

      just download tunnelbear and install the apk… I’ve had Music on my phone in Australia for about 3 months…

        I did the exact same thing as well, you can upload the music you already have to Google Music, but you can’t purchase more if you choose.

    Still don’t have this on my north american revue. It doesn’t help that my revue killed the TV sound as well

    Hope that they can add support for Peru soon!
