Google announces international Play Store media sale
A couple weeks back, we saw the initial rumblings of a Google Play Store Summer Sale, bringing (in some cases, sizable) discounts to a number of Android apps. But while these individual apps made mention of an overarching “Summer Sale,” we didn’t see a big, formal announcement from Google. Just what was the scope of this deal, and would it expand to include some of the other content for sale in the Play Store? Last night, it looks like Google started bringing us some answers, announcing that its seasonal sale would continue, bringing new offers to Android users in 17 nations around the globe.
While we were looking at apps before, this time the savings spotlight turns to media, with movies, books, and music getting what Google calls “the lowest prices of the year on new titles.” In particular, Google seems to be pushing its movie selection, and while we spotted a few attractive offers, the intermingling of rental and to-own prices (which can just be a few dollars apart) does make it a little more difficult than it might need to be to track down the biggest savings.
If you’re a Play Store user in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, The Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, or the UK, click on through that source link and see if any of these titles strike your fancy.
