Redeem the digital copy of movies purchased on DVD and Blu-ray

When you buy some movies on DVD and Blu-ray, you may be able to get a digital copy of the movie to watch on Google Play. There’s no charge for the digital copy and you won’t need to add a payment method.

Step 1: Sign in or create an account on Google Play

Make sure to sign in to the account you want to add the digital copy of your movie to. After you’ve redeemed the digital copy, you won’t be able to transfer it to another Google Account.

  1. Open the Google Play Movies & TV app Play Movies.
  2. Tap Menu Menu.
  3. At the top, you'll see the account you're using.
  4. Next to your account, tap the Down arrow Down arrow and then select an account.
  5. To add another account, go your device's Settings app Settings app Accounts and then Add account and then Google.

Step 2: Use the promotional code to get a Google Play code for your movie

You can only get the digital copy of the same movie that you bought in DVD or Blu-ray. The digital copy will also match the quality of your DVD or Blu-ray copy, so if you bought a DVD in SD quality, your digital copy will also be in SD.

Important: You can only redeem your promotional code within the country that you bought your DVD or Blu-ray. If you’re traveling and you bought a DVD or Blu-ray with a digital copy, make sure to redeem the digital copy before you leave that country.

Check the DVD or Blu-ray movie for instructions to redeem your digital copy. If you got a promotional code, follow the steps below: 

  1. Depending on where you got your movie, open their redemption site. Check redemption sites for different partners.
  2. On the website, enter the promotional code that you got with your DVD or Blu-ray.
  3. At the bottom you’ll see Result: Google Play Code xxxxxx.
  4. Copy the code to redeem on Google Play Store.

Step 3: Get your movie on Google Play

After you have your Google Play code, follow the steps below to get your movie:

  1. On your Android device, open the Google Play Store app Google Play.
  2. Tap Menu Menu and then Redeem.
  3. Enter your code.
  4. Tap Redeem.

Note: Promotional codes can only be redeemed once.

Step 4: Watch your movie on the Google Play Movies & TV app

After your movie has been added to your Google Play library, you can watch your movie on Google Play or through the Google Play Movies & TV app. Learn how to find movies you’ve added to your library.
