In a blog post last month, Google announced that Google Play Movies & TV will not be available on Roku, Samsung, LG, and Vizio smart TVs from June 15. Google also mentioned that Google Play Movies & TV services will be removed entirely from LG Netcast and LG SimpleSmart devices. It is also worth noting that the app is not being entirely shut down on other devices apart from the aforementioned ones.
All the purchases and rentals made on the app will be available through Your movies and shows section on the YouTube app on the listed devices. Your Watchlist will also not be available on YouTube but content can be added to playlists. Google also mentioned that the credits from Google Play Movies & TV will be transferable to YouTube. Also, Play Family Library purchases will be visible on YouTube. The latter doesn’t support family sharing, however, purchases made from the former will keep on supporting family sharing.

Last month, Google announced a new Google TV that lets parents control the content their kids watch on the platform. Parents can set up a kid’s profile on their Google TV and monitor their TV viewing time, put locks on certain apps, and share already purchased movies and TV shows for their kids.
