Android Market Update – UK users can now rent films (and buy books)!

Well it’s been a long time coming for us UK users but you can now rent films from the Android Market (version 3.1.5)!

You should notice a new link in the Market to “Films”. Click on this and it’ll take you through to the rentals section. Films vary from 99p to £3.49 and there are some quite ‘new’ films in there.

Books are also now available to purchase but the prices vary quite a bit but they’re definitely worth checking out.

Note to root users: Film rentals do not work on rooted devices 😦 (yet). I assume this is because root access could possibly allow you to save the movie file and back it up somewhere else. Obviously this would be illegal because you are only paying to rent the film.
