500 New Movies Coming to Google Play Store Thanks to Deal With Paramount


When Google says they are hard at work hammering out content deals with provider, they mean it. Another content provider has signed on with them today. Paramount Pictures will enjoy having their content up for sale and for rent in the Google Play Store. YouTube will also be getting the same treatment. The deal will add 500 titles, many of which are sure to be great.

This brings Google’s content library to over 9,000 (no Dragonball Z jokes, please) and brings their total of deals with major studios to 5 out of 6. We’re still waiting on 20th Century Fox and hopefully Google is close to inking that deal. The content will be available within the coming weeks, says Google, but a specific timeline was never mentioned. [Google YouTube blog]
