Google today announced that movies you've purchased on Google Play will automatically be upgraded to 4K for free. Your last movie purchases will be streamable in 4K, even if you originally bought the movie in standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD).
The long name Google Play Movies & TV only received 4K title in December 2016. One week after Google was obsessed with YouTube, livestreaming in 4K was supported. Google Play Movies & Movies did not allow existing SD and HD movies to be upgraded to 4K. The upgrade pricing model was obviously something that Google did not think about. It was not even possible to remove a movie from your account and buy it again in 4K for the full price. Google is now finally correcting the problem that has arisen by taking care of the upgrades and not charging anything.
However, there are some fine print ̵
"We will upgrade the titles internationally as 4K availability extends to more territories," a Google spokesman told VentureBeat. "We have no schedules to announce, but we are actively working on international expansion."
In the meantime, Google promises that 4K movies on Google Play "cost less." You can see all 4K tracks and their new prices here: Top 4K Movies. The Google Play Movies app now works on most 4K Samsung Smart TVs. Google is working to add support for LG, and the app has a modern look.
