Android TV’s new Shop tab lets you rent and buy movies, just like the old days

Google is introducing a brand new Shop tab to its Android TV platform, giving users a more direct way of purchasing or renting movies. 

At a glance, it looks similar to the already existing Discover section since they both display content you can watch. However, Discover requires users to dig through multiple menus, whereas with Shop, you can buy a movie right then and there without needing a subscription to anything. There are some restrictions, however. According to an Android TV Help page, people can only get content from four specific sources: Android TV itself, Google TV, Google Play Movies & TV, and YouTube. There isn’t any support for third-party services like Netflix.
