Google unveils holiday season savings on games, apps, books and movies

Announcing its cyberweek discounts, Google highlights a number of games that are either discounted or feature special in-app offers.

That should help fill your evening, but if you need something more substantial to fill the day, then the TV show discounts may be more appealing. Is it the flawless time for the whole family to catch up on Game of Thrones?




Games already seem to be discounted over on Google Play (Star Wars: KOTOR is now down to $2.99, for instance), and these gaming discounts also extend to in-app purchases for some free-to-play titles. While the 99-cent rental deal leads Google Play's holiday promotions, there are plenty of other deals to partake in if you're not in the mood to kick back with a flick.

Here you'd find discounts on movies and shows such as Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, and more! From reduced prices on in-app purchases in games like Dragonball Z: Dokkan Battle and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, to offering up to 80% off on premium titles like Reigns and others. If that isn't enough, Google is also offering up Starz subscriptions for $5 per month for your first three months of service.
