Just a heads up for all you brand new Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 users out there. While Google’s $25 Google Play credit may have expired back in September, ‘ol Googs is still nice enough to give you guys some complimentary free goodies by way of a movie and television show download/streams (depending on your part of the world), along with a random assortment of magazines and music.
If you’re in the US, head on over to your Play Movies & TV apps to find the full length movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon available for download/streaming, along with the 2-hour series premier of Falling Skies and an episode of Planet Earth (Nexus 4 only). The Nexus 7 and 10 swap Transformers for Ice Age, and somehow lose Falling Skies in the mix.
If you didn’t get stuck with the puny 8GB Nexus 4/7 models, you can even “pin” these videos and download ‘em straight to your device. While it may be nice to watch without an active data connection, keep in mind Transformers alone will take up a whopping 2.7GB of storage space. Thank, god for streaming.
When it comes to music and magazines, you’ll find a handful of artists (you probably never heard of), and a few magazines too. Just jump into Play Music and Play Magazines to find them already waiting for you. If Google added Cheers.
