[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.

Play Movies purchases in HD are showing up as 4K in YouTube for Android TV, though they still play in HD

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

We're not sure if this is a bug or a sign of things to come, but if you've purchased a movie on Google Play Movies in HD that has a 4K version available now and you open your purchases in the YouTube app on Android TV, you might spot a 4K sign below it. However, when you start playing it, the highest resolution available is 1080p.

Our tipster spotted this 4K label in his library, and Cody was able to confirm it as well.

You still can’t delete or upgrade films and TV episodes on Google Play

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

As long as Google Play Movies has existed, there has been one major problem - you can't delete movies or TV episodes from your library. That might seem like a minor issue, since it doesn't cost users anything to keep content, but it has become more pressing since Google Play added support for 4K movies.

Play Movies has always sold content in both standard-definition (480p) and high-definition (1080p). Since there is no way to delete movies/episodes in your library, or upgrade them to the higher-quality version, you're always stuck with what you bought.

UHD content now available through Google Play Movies in the UK

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Late last year, Google gave us a nice early Christmas present in the form of 4K video on Google Play. But unfortunately, that gift had a region restriction. Only those of us in the US and Canada were able to pick up media in the expanded resolution, leaving other markets with just HD content. Now people in the UK can get in on the UHD fun, too.
