There was an immeasurable distance between the quick and the dead: they did not seem to belong to the same species; and it was strange to think that but a little while before they had spoken and moved and eaten and laughed - W. Somerset Maugham
INTERNET SERVICES GIANT Google is bringing its TV service to the UK after a short delay, while other countries will still have some time to wait.
"Starting November 13th, +Google Play music and movies will now be available on your #GoogleTV in the United Kingdom, Germany and France," the company said in a Google+ post.
"We're sorry for an earlier post that said we're launching in more countries on 11/13, but stay tuned as we're bringing Google Play to more countries all the time."
Google TV has been around since 2010, but the Google Play music and movies have been a long time coming to the UK. People in the UK will be able to access those from the middle of next week, and we expect that they should find a wealth of programming to enjoy.
Users will be able to download or stream content through their televisions starting on 13 November in the United Kingdom, Germany and France. Punters in Canada and Australia who were also expecting to be treated to the service will have to wait a little while longer.
Until now only users in the US have been able to enjoy Google's Itunes-like TV service. µ
