UK Google TV owners will be able to rent and buy music, movies and TV shows from Google Play from 13 November. The service launched successfully in the US last month, and now Google is expanding it to other countries, including Germany and France, too.

According to Android Community, the service was also expected to be available in Australia and Canada from that date, but Google TV's Google+ announcement posting has been changed to suggest that's no longer the case, and there has been a delay for those territories.

"We're sorry for an earlier post that said we're launching in more countries on 11/13," says the Google TV team. "But stay tuned as we're bringing Google Play to more countries all the time."

There are currently no details available of prices for rental or purchase of Google Play media content, nor what titles will be available from next week's launch, but Pocket-lint will bring you more information as we get it.
