Google Play Now Selling TV Shows In Australia

Google Play began renting movies in Australia back in April 2012, started selling them in October that year, added music in April last year and streaming music as a subscription service in July. Now, rather belatedly, it will sell you TV shows as well.

Shows cost $2.99 per episode, with season passes available for some series. That pricing is (unsurprisingly) essentially identical to iTunes, but Google Play is obviously a more convenient option for Android owners.

Shows Google highlights in its announcement include Game Of Thrones (only seasons 1-3), Breaking Bad and Veep. Local content seems mostly drawn from SBS (Wilfred, Housos, East West 101), though veteran comedy Russel Coight’s All-Aussie Adventures also gets a shout-out.
