    As we all know "Video killed the radio star", Blockbuster killed the Box Office, Red Box killed Blockbuster, and Google Play kills them all! I can't remember the last time I rented a physical copy of a movie. Yes I still buy Blurays, but that is mostly so we can easily entertain the kids on long road trips. Now days if I want to rent a movie I simply launch the Google Play app on my TV and order whichever movie I am interested in. I have often thought how now that I have 4K TVs in the house it would be nice to be able to rent some 4K content since the only real consistent provider of 4K content has been Netflix.

    Google has just launched 4K video options on the Play Store. UHD rentals will run you $7.99 which may be worth it depending on the video. Obviously a "Star Wars : Rogue One" rental would probably merit the enhanced video quality over a rental of "Madea's Christmas". UHD rentals and purchases are avaialable in the US and UK only for now. Also only 125 titles are currently available, but you can expect that number to quickly expand!

    via Play Store

    Speak for yourself. I for one love the fact that I can see just how long ago Tyler Perry shaved his face to play Madea. :D:p

    I used to be a store manager at Blockbuster. For the record, Redbox didn't kill Blockbuster. Netflix did.

    Argh...less work to just upgrade your Netflix package when you are in the mood for UHD video, then downgrade when you are content with FHD.
