Google has added a host of TV shows to its Google Play Store, giving Android users the chance to watch programs on the go.
The additions include hit US dramas Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Suits alongside popular home grown shows like Luther. Children’s favourites including Peppa Pig have also made the cut, as have a host of different genres.
Users can buy individual episodes for £1.89, or £2.49 for an HD version, and download a full season for around £12.99. There is also the option of a season pass, which will provide a discount when purchasing multiple episodes.
The move will challenge the popularity of streaming services like Netflix and LoveFilm and provide an extra incentive for Android users. With a range of devices running the platform, and the ability to download rather than stream cutting down on mobile data costs, it’s likely to prove a popular decision.
Google has branched out into multimedia in recent months after the launch of Google Play Music All Access, a music streaming service.
