Google Play TV

Still just four countries in total have access to TV shows through Google Play

Googe Play TV is expanding to just its fourth country worldwide today with the move down under to Australia. The country joins the exclusive company of the United States, United Kingdom and Japan, building on the prior availability of the "movies" side of Google Play previously. Australia now has access to pretty much every portion of Google Play, including apps, books, magazines and music (All Access, too).

TV shows may be one of the toughest content categories to obtain the proper rights to launch in an additional country, so you can somewhat understand why the rollout has been slower than something like books. Today's expansion makes us hopeful that TV shows will come to even more countries soon, but we're not holding our breath.
