Google's Android Market Offering Movie Rentals Starting At $1.99
Google kicked off its
2011 I/O conference
with a flurry of announcements, and it looks like the Big G is getting into the streaming movies game.
just pushed live thousands of movies, starting at $1.99 for rentals.
All movies on the Market have a 30-day rental period, but as soon as you start playback, you only have
24 hours to watch the film
While you will be able to stream videos instantly much like Netflix, a new "pinning" feature is also available to let you download movies in the background for offline playback.
The Honeycomb tablet app will roll out with Android (Honeycomb) 3.1 this summer, while Android 2.2 devices will get an updated movies app "in a few weeks."
