Google Play Movies & TV app will be permanently retired in early 2024

Google announced in a blog post that support for Google Play Movies & TV will be permanently discontinued from January 17, 2024. In September, the company announced that the service would end-of-life on October 5. This date may have been aimed at US users. Depending on the region, customers will have to switch to another Google service for playing movies and TV shows in the coming weeks.

Google is transferring more and more functionality to YouTube.

For example, users with TVs and streaming devices running Android TV will be directed to the Shop tab. Decoders and set-top boxes with Android TV must use the YouTube app, desktop users can also visit YouTube.

A side note: while it is possible to rent or buy films via YouTube in many countries, the functionality in the field of series is rather limited. For example, only users from Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, the UK, the US and Switzerland can currently rent shows. Moreover, series are only for sale in Japan.
