Google Play Store loses movies and TV shows, moving to Google TV

(Pocket-lint) – Google has announced plans to overhaul its content offering – yet again – by removing movies and TV shows from the Google Play Store on Android.
Google’s idea is to simplify its services, by refining the content of each application. This means that Play Store will continue to be your store for apps and games, but movies and TV will move to the Google TV app.
In a way, it feels like when YouTube Music completely replaced the Google Play Music service, in an effort to make it less confusing.
From a user experience perspective, this means that when you open the Play Store on your Android phone, you will no longer see a tab for TV/Movies, and results for Movies and TV Shows will no longer appear. will no longer appear when you use the search function.
This does not mean that you lose content that you have already purchased or rented. Instead, you’ll just be accessing it from a different place, as purchases are still tied to your Google Account.
You’ll be able to access it through the Google TV app – which you can download here if you don’t already have it – and you can still see your movie purchases in the YouTube app.
Most Android phones these days come with this app pre-installed, so if you have a relatively new phone, you should already have it and you can easily find your existing content.
