I'm in Germany and I want to download movies in English from the Google Play store to watch my Android tablet, however I can only get movies in German. How can I get the English versions?

Contents are selected based on your location, and (maybe) your device's language settings. If the latter is a criterium you could check by setting your device's language to English. I'm not 100% sure if this works, but it's worth a try. – Izzy Dec 16 '12 at 21:36
Unfortunately device language does not influence movies language. Tried on my device. – Filippo Mazza Jun 17 '13 at 14:17
I'learning German and I wanted exactly the opposite. – joao_pimentel May 30 '15 at 12:36
I confirm what @Filippo Mazza said. All my settings are to German, mobile device and all Google accounts, but because I live in the Netherlands I get the movies in English. – joao_pimentel Jun 2 '15 at 18:40

You can edit the build.prop settings on a rooted phone with something like i think or maybe ro.product.locale.region=US

At least in new Google Movies app (mine is V3.8.8) you can find Audio Language preference in Settings: it allows to Play videos in video's original language or US English when available.

Hope it helps.

what does when available mean. Every movie i check is only in german – phil soady Feb 2 at 23:19
I mean that not every movie has a US English audio version or there are other restrictions (that I however ignore). I am in France and most French movies do not provide an English version... :/ (so the option is of course not available ) – Filippo Mazza Feb 3 at 15:52
