63 countries now have Google Play Movies, with 25 now having Play Music as well

Well it turns out Google has been busy signing deals to expand Google Play Movies, as the content choice has just expanded to 36 new countries around the world today. And the new countries truly are around the entire world, with a huge crop of countries from Europe, Africa, South America and many other regions represented:

Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, Gabon, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Ivory Coast, Luxembourg, Mali, Mauritius, Namibia, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Niger, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Rwanda, Senegal, Sweden, Togo, Uruguay, Venezuela and Zambia.

This is the first large expansion since December, and brings the total number of countries with access to the Google Play Movies store to a staggering 63 — let’s see how long it takes for another huge expansion.

Looking at another area of the Play Store, Google Play Music — including the subscription All Access offering — has expanded to four new countries as well, all of which are in Europe: Greece, Norway, Slovakia and Sweden. This brings the total for the music service up to 25 countries now, and while it isn’t 63 countries it’s nothing to shake a stick at.
