So when i got my nexus 7 I signed up as if i was in the US to get the free $25 credit and free movie.

I was able to get the movie to play once via VPN and then it stopped working (not available in your country).

Well i was playing on my nexus 4 and notice that there was no Play movies on the phone so when to all apps in the play store and find the app and enabled it.

I can now steam movies on both my nexus 4 and nexus 7 however i still can't buy from the NZ play store.
So i did a little test, i used a VPN on my windows machine and purchased a tv show via the play store website, I then tried to play this on both my phone and nexus 7 and both are stream/downloading it fine without any VPN or anything (connected just to my slingshot account).

Could this be a sign of something coming?

So if anyone else has a nexus 7/4 (anything else with movies) can you please test it :)

You are right, I've never been able to enable movies and books on my nexus 7 and now I can and can watch them without a VPN. I can also watch them on my galaxy S2.

Hopefully somethings happening

Well it would be the first step i would take to release something, enable that stuff behind but keep the front locked (play store).

I doubt we're getting TV shows - if Apple and Microsoft can't bring them to us I don't think Google will be able to. (Insert obligatory "blame Sky" here).

It's possibly just an oversight in their systems - the geo-locks on many Google services are pretty lazy.
