When it comes to streaming media, Canada is getting pretty used to having the ‘not so’ latest and greatest. This is why it is rather exciting news to learn that Google has (quietly) brought TV shows to Google Play for Canadians! As far as content goes, the Canadian store appears to have virtually everything that the US store does –perhaps even a few more titles that aren’t available down South.
Single episodes are available for $2.49-$3.49 each, while seasons of your favourite shows can always be purchased for $20-$40 per. Some older content is available at a discounted price, mimicking the good old bargain bins we used to be familiar with seeing in department stores.
With access to music, movies and television shows, the only Google Play store that Canada is still waiting on is Newsstand –Canadians cannot restore memberships from print subscriptions which is something available to Americans.
