Google has silently rolled-out Google Play TV Shows in UK. It is the second country after United States to get access to TV shows. Search giant has updated the ‘International availability of content’ page to reflect the availability.
The available TV shows include a decent mix of UK and US television like Luther, Walking Dead, Homeland, House etc.
