Can I watch Google Play movies on my LG WebOS TV?

Question

Just bought a new LG 4K 55" TV (55UF77), everything seems to be the latest. I have YouTube app installed, can stream 4K videos (really nice!) but I was wondering whether I could watch Google Play movies on my TV? I mean, directly, through some WebOS app. (Because, 'indirectly', using a ChromeCast device I believe I could, but that would limit me to WiFi and thus to a limited bandwidth.)

 

Anybody has any insight on this?

 

(I'm located in Hungary and I can watch Google Play movies on my laptop no problem. So it's not a regional limitation or anything.)

 

Regards,

 

Lajos

For YouTube 2015 models support VP9-video for 4k-videos.It's a codec that YouTube started using this year. 2014 models don't support it.

Google play movies app is now in premium apps for download(atleast in Finland).
