Google has unveiled Google Movies for Android, a new app that allows users to rent and play movies on their tablets or phones.
The news is an extension of Monday’s announcement that YouTube is offering 3,000 additional movies for its on-demand rental service. Google revealed that it struck deals with Sony Pictures, NBC Universal and Warner Brothers for the rights to their movies.
That vast movie library has now made its way to Android. Movie rentals will start at $1.99 and be available directly from the Android Market. Once users rent a movie, they have 30 days to start watching the film and get 24 hours to watch it once it starts. The films can either be streamed or temporarily downloaded to Android phones so they can be watched offline.
The rental service will become available later today for all Android devices.
