Streaming media platform Roku has confirmed that Google Play Movies & TV has been added to its Channel Store in the US, UK, Ireland and Canada. With the addition of Google Play Movies & TV, users now have more options than ever to watch the entertainment they love on their Roku player, says the company.
Writing in the Roku Blog, Ziba Kaboli-Gerbrands, Roku’s director of content acquisition, says that from the hottest new releases to iconic classics, there’s a world of movies at users’ fingertips. “Get new releases like 22 Jump Street, Into the Storm and Let’s Be Cops in SD or HD before they are available on DVD,” she advises.
Those signing up for a Google Play account earn a ‘Gift from Google’ – a complimentary HD copy of X-Men.
“You can find Google Play Movies & TV in the Channel Store now on current-generation Roku players. Roku TV support is coming soon,” she adds.
