Watch movies & shows using a different account

You can watch a movie or TV show on any device that has the Google Play Movies & TV app. To watch, just sign in to the Google Account that you used to order the movie or TV show.

You can't transfer movies or TV shows between accounts.

Sign in to a different account

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Play Movies & TV app Play Movies.
  2. Tap Menu Menu.
  3. At the top of the main menu, you'll see which account you're using.
  4. Next to your account, tap the Down arrow Down arrow and then select a different account.
    • To add a different account, in your device, tap Settings Settings app and then tap Accounts and then Add account and then Google.

Sign in to a different account on Android TV

To sign in to a different Google Play Movies & TV account on Android TV, you'll need to remove the account you're using on your device and add the new one. After doing this, you'll need to go through the setup process again. For more information, go to the Android TV Help Center.

You can also cast to your Android TV from another Google Account using your phone or tablet. For more information, go to the Chromecast Help Center.

If you use 2-step verification on an account, you'll need to create an app password before adding an account.
