Google Play Movies & TV will upgrade movies to 4K for free

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Google has announced a couple of significant changes to Play Movies & TV that will have a considerable impact on owners of 4K televisions. Starting today, some previously-purchased movies will automatically be upgraded to 4K quality once it's available. The price of newly-purchased 4K content on the platform is also going down.

We saw signs these changes were coming last week. Movies "from participating Hollywood studios" — that's Fox, Lionsgate, NBC Universal, Sony, and Warner Bros — purchased in SD or HD quality will be available to stream in 4K as soon as that quality is available.

[Update: Added sorting] Google Play Movies v4.8 prepares to enable 4K upgrades, likely making them free [APK Teardown]

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

Google added 4K movies to its library back in late 2016, following the launch of the Chromecast Ultra. Since then, many people — myself included — came to realize that there was one big oversight: It's not possible to upgrade your existing HD movies to 4K. There was no upgrade pricing or even an option to remove a movie from your account and then purchase it again in 4K at full price.

As MoviePass collapses, Sinemia expands $30 unlimited movie subscription plan to more places

Monday, September 17th, 2018

The $10 unlimited movie subscription from app-based MoviePass seemed too good to be true when it launched a few years back, and indeed it was. MoviePass is in the process of imploding, but one of its European rivals has taken this opportunity to expand into the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Sinemia says its approach is sustainable, but it's also more expensive. You'll pay $30 per month for unlimited movies.

Since 2014, Sinemia has been operating in Europe, but it thinks the higher subscription price will appeal to other markets as well.

MoviePass attempts to put out dumpster fire by shooting self in foot

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The situation at MoviePass is bad. Very bad. With the value of the company having plummeted tremendously after a disastrous reverse stock split last week, MoviePass's owners are doing anything they can to stem the bleeding at the popular all-you-can-eat theater subscription service, and it looks like "anything" means making the service much, much worse.

I won't leave you waiting on the big changes: monthly pricing is going up 50% (to $14.95) and you won't be able to see most movies (anything opening on over 1000 screens) until they've been out for two weeks.

Google Play Movies & TV expands HDR cast support to Nvidia Shield TV, Sony smart TVs

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Almost a year ago, HDR support came to Google Play Movies & TV by way of Google's 4K streaming dongle, the Chromecast Ultra. Now, compatible Sony smart TVs and the best Android set-top box in the game, Nvidia Shield TV, are getting support for HDR content from Google Play as well — but only if it's cast from another device.

Of course, you can't watch HDR movies on just any old screen.

[D’aw] Google Photos can now create ‘Love Story’ movies

Monday, June 25th, 2018

One of the neat features of Google Photos is that it can automatically create videos around certain ideas. Just select a theme, choose the people (or pets, depending on which theme), and Photos takes care of the rest. Now, a new, couple-focused theme is available: Love Story.

The card for the Love Story theme says it's designed to "Celebrate a romantic relationship," and that it works best if you have a lot of pictures of yourself with your significant other.

Google Play Movies & TV on Roku is getting an update with a new look, better browsing, and more

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Google Play Movies & TV's Roku channel is getting a face lift. The new channel looks a little like YouTube's TV web wrapper, with content filling most of the screen and navigation on the left. "The entire experience has been redesigned to put the focus on content above all else," Google said in a blog post.

In addition to its new, sleek, and content-centric aesthetic, the channel has gained a revamped TV page in place of the old My TV Shows page that offers suggestions for what to watch next.

MoviePass competitor Sinemia now starts at $4.99 per month, but with caveats

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

By giving more than 2 million customers a way to see multiple movies in theaters each month at a discounted price, MoviePass is disrupting the cinema industry in a big way. While not nearly as much of a household name, Sinemia is vying to do the same. With new subscription plans starting at lower prices and boasting features that its rival doesn't offer, Sinemia may seem like an appealing alternative — and it may be for some types of moviegoers.
