Strangely, my icon hasn't updated for the Google Play store, but I do seem to have gotten into the store (with its various new promotions) by entering through the Shop link in Google Play Books. It looks a bit different than the official update I got on my phone, but that may just be because it's on a tablet.
Here's my problem. When I try to download Google Play Movies to take advantage of the movie offerings in Google Play, it tells me that the download isn't available in my country (US).
Any able to either download Google Play Movies or figure out how to watch a movie downloaded from the Google Play store without that app?

I just installed the Google Play APK manually (3.4.7) and it's working beautifully now.
Movies are working as well...
Try installing the APK manually, that should fix the movies. Here's the link:

Thanks. I tried the apk file, which worked, and I got the full new Google Play store on my K1. I'm still having problems with movies, though, getting messages like "There was a problem with the network " or a message that the movie isn't available in my country (US). Anyone else having that error?

OK, so for those of you have downloaded the APK file separately and installed Google Play yourself .... please help me out & tell me this, as this Lenovo K1 is my first tablet & I don't know any better ...
When you download & install the APK file for Google Play, will it automatically REPLACE the Android Market App .... OR .... do you have to go into your tablet and delete the Android Market App?
Thanks for whatever detailed information you can provide for those of us who only have basic understanding.

I downloaded a newer version of The Google Play Store app that was released a couple of days ago (version 3.4.7). Those of you who have downloaded & installed the apk yourselves ... what version do you have?
I have not installed it yet. Am a little hesistant to do this as I have never done it before. The version of the Android Market currently on my K1 is version 1.0.28.
Should I be so nervous about installing this thing?
