Roku just got a Google Play Movies channel

Roku users just got another way to rent and buy movies and TV shows — but this one is worth mentioning regardless: Owners of current-generation Roku players now have access to a Google Play Movies and TV Shows channel on their devices, which means that they’ll also have access to any of the movies or shows they have previously bought from Google on their Android devices. The Google Play Movies channel also comes with info overlays that identify the actors on screen. Support for Roku TVs will follow soon, according to Roku’s press release.
