Google Movies & TV Offering 50% Off Movie Rental

March 3, 2016 - Written By David Steele

Google Play Movies & TV is Google’s online television and movie store. There are hundreds of thousands of movies and television series available either to buy or rent from the website or of course from the Google Play Store application on your smartphone or tablet. Because movies are linked with your account, if you were to buy a movie on one device (such as your smartphone) you can watch it on any other connected device (such as your tablet). Play Movies & TV also synchronises where you are at when watching a movie or show, which means you might start watching something on your commute, but when you get home you might continue on your tablet, before putting it onto your television perhaps via a Chromecast or Android TV set top box. For movies, Google allow customers to buy the film. Many titles are available in either SD (standard definition) or HD (high definition), although some are only available in standard definition. Movies are available to download onto a device and if you make a habit of this, you’re either going to need a handset or tablet with plenty of onboard storage or a big MicroSD card.

Google Play Movies have just announced a special offer that entitles an account holder to rent a movie at 50% off between now and the 17 March. Google have made the deal available in a large number of countries, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, several in Europe including Germany, France, Italy, Denmark and the United Kingdom. Finland, Sweden, Norway also benefit as does Australia and Zambia. To activate the deal, either hit up the source link below or if this doesn’t work, you can use the code “PDMOVIE2016” when renting a movie. Once you have activated the promotion you have until the 17 March to rent a film, and once you have rented something you have thirty days to watch it before it expires. Google’s technology does allow you to download a rented movie to a device, should you wish to watch this when you are offline – but for a rented title, you won’t be able to download or stream it on another device until it has been removed from the first device.
