Google Play Movie pre-orders

Google Play has finally launched a feature that has been oddly missing: Movie pre-orders.

Be it on physical media or in digital form, pre-ordering films before their release has been a commonplace activity for years now. The lack of this feature on Google Play has seemed odd, but that has now been corrected and you can jump on the pre-order train.

A special page has been set up to explain the process, and includes the following instructions.

  1. Check out the list of available pre-orders below. 
  2. Choose the title you want and click the pre-order button.
  3. If you are new to Google Play you will need to enter credit card details, but your card will not be charged until the movie is delivered. 
  4. You will receive an email receipt, and the pre-order will be added to “My Movies.” Clicking on your pre-ordered movie will take you to the latest info about it, including release date. 
  5. On the day the movie becomes available, you will receive an email confirming your purchase and the delivery of the movie to your library.
  6. Then it’s yours to own and enjoy!

Seems pretty straightforward to us. No matter how long it took, at least the feature is finally here and you can start getting your pre-orders in for your favorite new films.
