Global Showbiz Briefs: Google’s Euro Play, German Film Fund, France Runs ‘Marathon’

Movies, Music Hit Europe Via Google Play Next Tuesday
Google Play music and movies will be available in Europe starting November 13. Owners of a Google TV set-top box or enabled TV in the UK, Germany and France will gain access to media on the Google Play store, the company said in a Google+ post. Italy and Spain were included in a previous post but were not mentioned in the most recent. Also, the movies and music won’t immediately be accessible to other Google devices such as Nexus smartphones or tablets but should have access in the near future. Rolling out content internationally has been complicated for Google because of Hollywood movie and TV licensing issues, according to CNET. Canada and Australia also may soon see an expansion of Google Play content, according to another Google+ post that also has been deleted.
