Google Play announces Black Friday deals

Black Friday is associated with lining up at stores to buy heavily discounted stuff, but theres no rule that says digital stores cant take part (plus, no lines!). Google Play is offering deals on apps, games, movies, TV shows and books.

The deals vary per country and not every country can get in on the action. Go here, if you get an error page, youre not invited (sorry). So, here are some cheap ways to avoid talking to your family over the weekend.

Premium games are up to 80% off with entries from some of the worlds largest franchises. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is $1.49/1.49, Star Wars: KOTOR is $2.99/2.99 and, if youre looking for something simple, Reigns is $0.99/0.99. Some apps are up to 50% off.

Or you can catch up with TV shows including Game of Thrones and American Horror Story or rent a movie for $0.99. You can sign up for Starz and the first three months youll pay only $5 a month.

If you prefer books text or audio those are discounted as well.
