Some of us who opened Google’s Play Movies & TV this afternoon on our devices were surprised to find a free short film on offer, or automatically added to our collections.
We can’t see a pattern to who gets which film – several members of the Ausdroid team have both a 2013 Nexus 7 and a Nexus 5, but the offer appears to be inconsistent even amongst that group and we’ve even seen Shaun the Sheep offered to users who just installed the app on a Galaxy S III.
Some users aren’t seeing the offer at all (sorry guys!), while some have seen an item offered with the option to add it to their library, and others have simply seen it turn up in their library.
Neither item seems to be officially available to Australian customers to purchase or rent at the moment, and there’s been no announcement from Google Australia about the offer, making this even more curious.
If you have Play Movies & TV on your device (or, even if you don’t yet) you should probably open the app up and see if Google’s got some free goodies for you! Check the Watch Now area for a screen like the ones seen below:
