    I have only used iTunes throughout my life but am currently thinking of using both for buying movies/tv shows.

    What are the main differences in how both work? Does Google work better for those who change regions, or is it also recommended to have more than one account to access multiple markets?

    What about prices, are they pretty similar? Or quality, a movie in HD available on both is going to have the exact same quality?

    My experience is that Google bought movies/tv-shows will only work as long as you are in the country where you bought them in and iTunes movies/tv-shows will work anywhere as long as you don't change region in your apple id.

    Also iTunes bought stuf will only be playable through iTunes so you can't watch them on any other devices then Apples, except for Windows computers. Play store bought movies will be playable on alot more devices.

    Do you mean streaming or also downloaded content?

    Talking about streaming, not sure if you can play content downloaded in the google play apps outside the country but you can do both with itunes content.

    I like that google allow to upload a very large amount of file on it.

    A version like iTunes Match... but free :)

    P.S: why google copy all the service that apple invent?

    In the middle of several books.
    If I am not mistaken, Google Play is limited to 720p.
