Google Play Now Available for Google TV

Google TV users will now be able to buy or rent TV programs and films on Google Play.

"You’ll be able to buy or rent content directly through the Google Play Store on Google TV, and purchases you’ve made on other devices will also be automatically available on Google TV," wrote Ambarish Kenghe, Google TV product manager on the Google TV blog. "For developers, this update also enables many other Google Play features including auto-updates, subscription billing, and smart app updates."

Titles can be found through the TV & Movies app which will also give recommendations for available programs or films. The offerings will also be able to sync with other Android devices.

Despite many pundits saying that Google TV was dead, a new $100 set-top from Vizio seems to have energized sales. But, as we have said before, the death of Google TV has been greatly exaggerated.
