Review from Ned Lexus
Great app, but titles need to be much cheaper I'm seeing titles on here that cost more than double the price it would cost to buy a physical DVD and rip it to my tablet. It doesn't make much sense to spend $10 on a movie that would cost $2 elsewhere. Make them cheaper and I'll give 5*. overall though, well done Google with your programming!
I am unable to download movies. "Unable to fetch license (error -1)" Hours with Google support. Cleared cache, uninstalled, rolled back to previous version... Same error. Used to work, but hasn't worked since the end of last year. Retried as recently as this week. I fly pretty frequently. Would be nice if this worked.
Its a great app and love the fact that I can cast any film via Chromecast to my tv. The only disappointment is the pricing of the movies - for a digital rendition of any movie, in theory, it should cost a lot less than its average dvd/blu-ray as these dont come with extras and there is never a lifetime gaurantee, unlike its predecessors. So come on, Google, stop trying to fleece your customers.
I purchased the latest season of Doctor Who through the app and have had major issues accessing episodes. The first issue occurred a couple of weeks ago where the new episode wasn't available until almost a week after it should have been. The next issue just happened. The newest episode was listed yesterday, but had no thumbnail and when clicked on prompted me to purchase the season I had already paid for. Today the episode is listed but when you click on it says "no purchase options available", again for content I've already paid for. I usually purchase seasons through Amazon and will go back to doing so as I've never had any issues with them.
I haven't had any functionality issues but the fact that I've still got to pay like $10-15 for movies that are old enough to vote is weird. I typically go elsewhere to buy my movies because of this but in and of itself, this is pretty decent. It's just that a lot of the titles are a serious money grab.
I love being able to use the Google Play Movie Application it is really great to watch on my devices. It also connects with my Disney Movies Anywhere Application so I can watch all my Disney Movies too. I also enjoy watching my favorite television shows with it. Thanks again for all that you have to offer Google Play Movie Application so much.
Complete and utter garbage. This app is so buggy that, despite being the Google proprietary playing software it can't handle playback for more than fifteen seconds without crashing ever since the last update. "Stability improvements and bug fixes" my ass. Doesn't matter if you're on WiFi or mobile data, a minute and a half into playback it'll crash.
