Android Movie Rentals In UK Launched

Well it’s been a while coming to the United Kingdom but finally Android users in the UK that enjoy watching movies now have another place where they can rent films from, the Android Market, as the Google guys have now launched their movie rentals for Android smartphones and Android tablets in the United Kingdom, the same movie rental service that has been available to US Android users for some time.

According to an article over on The Telegraph, the Android Market movie rental service is now live for the United Kingdom and offers approximately a thousand film titles UK Android users can opt to rent and watch on their smartphone, tablet or computer.

Movie rental categories on the Android Market are, Action & Adventure, Animations & Cartoons, Comedy, Drama, Documentary, Family and Horror so it would appear that the service might have something to suit every Android users visual need.

Google recently launched a UK eBook store going up against rivals Amazon and Apple, along with launching movie rentals via YouTube.

Apparently Android users will need to download and install the Video App to view rented movies, and the majority of movies will have a 30-day lifespan after purchasing so they can be watched anytime within that timeframe although once a movie has begun is will be available for 48 hours.

Android users can rent movies via their device or via the web by accessing market.android.com/movies and movies will be available to view via any device the user is logging into throughout the rental period.

Price wise it appears that the majority of movie titles available command a rental price tag of £3.49 although there are several priced at £2.49.

I’ve had a quick look at the movie rentals on the Android Market and such titles available are, Fast Five, Green Lantern, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Wizard of Oz, Hall Pass, and more, so if you are interested in renting movies on your Android device hit up the Android Market and check them out.
