    Default Watching Google Play Rented Movies on GTV

    How do you watch movies rented on Google's Play Movie Service on a Logitech Revue? I didn't see an app like Play Video.

    Thanks,

    I think a lot of people are wondering this and so far I have seen no answer. As far as I know, at the moment you can't, which is completely ridiculous.

    You probably need to give it a couple more days. I think all the updates are still in the process of rolling out. I still haven't gotten the update on my phone.

    I see rentals in the TV & Movies app under the Movies category on the left side of the screen.

    I have not rented any lately but the last time I rented a movie from the google market it was made available to watch on youtube, go there, bring up your account and there is a purchases tab, your movie is there to watch.

    *Edit* I wanted to confirm this again so I just rented the 25 cent movie of the day and can confirm it is 100% viewable on youtube

    Thanks! I'll check it out tonight. On a side note, did you used to post on the Spawn.com boards?

    Also, I wish Google would make this a little more intuitive. I don't know how many people know that you have to go to YouTube to watch your rentals. Doesn't make much sense. They need to just release a Play Movies app.

    Has anyone tried using the web version of the Google Play to watch movie? I didn't rent a movie, but you can watch the trailers or previews directly from that.

    I have an Inspire and the Revue, and Google Play store says neither device is supported for Google Play Movies. Hopefully it's just a matter of time like with Netflix (but not too much time like with Hulu+).

    Agreed. I really have no idea why they didnt just add the app on to GTV. It makes things a lot harder for the end user. I hate to say it, but Apple (from the looks of their newest apple tv) got it right. Hopefully google rolls out an update soon for this.

    Exclamation Re: Watching Google Play Rented Movies on GTV

    Hi, I just wanted to note to those looking here that when Google Play market re-branding first rolled out a few weeks ago, I definitely did install a "Google Play Moves" app along with the updated "Google Play Music" app on my Logitech Revue the first day, via the Google TV Market app. However when I looked for it under all apps, it strangely was not listed, only the "Google Play Music" app showed up. Not sure what happened, maybe it was simply pre-installing prior to the eventual Movies app activation, but it defiantly was listed in the market and went through the install app motions when I selected it. Just an FYI to those who might not have seen it.

    I tried renting a movie and then couldn't watch it on GTV, which I used to be able to. When i went to send a comment to Google, it said that watching movies either via a movie app or the browser youtube was not supported at this time and that I could request a credit for the movie purchase . It sounded as if it wasn't a permanent decision, but they never responded to my email asking if tnis was temporary.

    Currently have HTC Flyer, HTC Evo3D, Sony Tablet S, Nexus One, Sony BlueRay GoogleTV box, and Sony GoogleTV.

    My Nexus 7 came with Transformers Dark of the Moon, and this movie shows up in purchases in the Youtube App on my Google TV.

    But if you try and watch it you get a flash player notice saying it is out dated version.

    They updated my Sony GTV set top box. Works great now.

    Supposedly, Google TV is supposed to get a Google Play update (announced three weeks ago), where you can rent moves. Has anyone seen this on the Revue. I know Logitech threw the Revue away, but anyone report getting this update?

    Thanks.

    How is the quality now since the update? I purchased the latest Sony Google TV box but had to return it as the HD quality from Google Play was so bad and that was the main reason why I bought it to watch HD movies on my TV from Google Play. Would love to switch to Google Play full time away from iTunes but Google is making that hard ATM with how bad the HD content was. I'm hoping its fixed!

    I have a Revue, and I was watching some free TV shows the Play Store was offering, and it was pretty good (not HD) but very good for a Revue.
    For HD movies, earlier this year, I bought a Roku, this streams Netflix and Amazon films in HD.
