It's something that shouldn't come as a surprise, and something we commented on yesterday, but now we have official word from Google that the UK won't be getting Play Music, Magazines or TV shows in time for its Nexus 7 launch. Old Blighty, which has Play Books, Apps and Movies, has long been without streaming Music support (without proxy-based black magic, at least), and wasn't included in Google's initial roll-out of TV and Magazine services.
A Google spokesperson told The Inquirer, "The UK version will feature all of the options currently available in the UK Play store." That'll be apps, books and movies only, then.
Though we recently bemoaned the lack of certain Google Play services internationally, we were holding out hope that a last minute switch-on might coincide with the Nexus 7 launch, so it's disappointing that that's not the case. Nevertheless, the Nexus 7 is still great value at its £159 price point. If you're considering picking one up, let us know if the lack of some Google Play services has you thinking twice.
