    In the United Arab Emirates for example, rentals start from 9.99 AED ($2.72 USD) and 14.99 AED ($4.08 USD) for major titles. Movies sell for 40 to 50 AED ($10.89 - $13.61 USD). The catalog includes titles such as X-Men, Suicide Squad, Independence Day Resurgence, The Martian, and many others. However, there are no Bollywood movies.

    Google expanded its Play Movie service to 40 additional countries, most in Europe, in March 2014.

    The Google Play Movies app is available on Android TV devices, Chromecast, LG webOS TVs, iPhone/iPad, Android mobile, PC/Mac, and certain other devices.
