The New Web reports that Russian users can now buy books and movies from the Google Play store. The move comes roughly a week after Apple launched its competing iTunes Store in four countries, including Russia.
Movies cost 149 rubles (approximately $4.85) to purchase and 49 rubles ($1.59) to rent, while books will also cost 49 rubles. According to TNW, the prices are on par with those of the Russian iTunes Store.
Russian Google Play users can now purchase apps — which were previously available — as well as movies and books, while music downloads remain unavailable.
