More than 600 new Twentieth Century Fox titles available for rental or purchase in Google Play


Google has been working to make the Play Store a premier source for movie and TV show purchases and rentals, and today they’ve bolstered their catalog even more with the addition of 600 new titles from Twentieth Century Fox.

Prometheus, the Ridley Scott science fiction film, is even available in HD now — and we’re still 3 weeks out before it hits DVD and Blu Ray. More titles like Family Guy, X-Men, Ice Age, Glee, and more will all be available over the next few weeks. Head to Google for more details.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Their rentals are way to expensive considering you can just go to redbox and get a movie for like $1.50. I understand you can watch movies on the go, but $4 for new release rentals are ridiculous.

    1. I agree they need to cut the rental price in half for most things. At that point I might even drop netflix, since I tend to watch only about 1 movie per week.

  2. At least you have the option in the US… Google has yet to release movies and music to other markets, including South Africa (where I’m from). Come on Google, I’d buy a Nexus 7 and loads of media if you’d only let me… ;)

    1. Can the N7 be “GEDified”? — similar to the process of converting a non-US Xoom into a US Xoom in order to receive updates / access markets)… not sure if such a thing has been set up for N7 yet.

  3. Factor in the cost of gas driving back and forth to RedBox twice, I see no problem with the $4 price. Now if I could actually watch purchased movies on my Google TV……. At least I have Amazon for a half assed solution.

    1. if you make a special trip to go to a redbox, thats your fault. we all drive somewhere nearly every day, and there are usually at least one redbox on the way home. your point is invalid unless you live in a small town

      1. Agree completely. I usually pick up a movie on my way home from work, and there must be nearly 10 kiosks within 1/2 mile of my 12 mile drive home. There are three off my home exit alone. Two gas stations, and a Pharmacy. Google movies should be $2 at most.

      2. Small town, the store is closed, or you’re too hung over from the night before to make it out of the house in the first place. :-)

    2. You can watch them on GTV…With YouTube… All your purchases are there

  4. Ah… so this explains where the Prometheus 720p “webrip” on PirateBay came from before the 1080p bluray was even released… (just sayin’)
