I am halfway through season 3 of Homeland and bought a new galaxy tablet. It was purchased from the Play Store on my old galaxy tab.

Since I have the same Google account associated with both tablets, is there a way to download the show to the new tablet?

When you download a paid or free app on Google Play, the app is connected to your Google Account. This means you can reinstall downloaded apps to new or reset devices without purchasing them again.

source : Reinstall apps & games

This is About Apk apps.but for Download this, if you can download this again in Old Device so you can Copy Downloading Link and Sign In With Purchased Device in New Device.

Also, as this link said : OIT HelpDesk - Knowledge Base

Your purchases are tied to your Google Account and can be installed an unlimited amount of times on any device. So, for example, if you remove "My Favorite Game" to save memory, you can reinstall it at a later date with no charge by simply visiting My Apps. You can also re-install apps from play.google.com from the My Android Apps section.

So, just Sign in With purchased Google Account in New Device, and Find what you want and Downloaded it.

Hope this helps.

  • Thanks. I'm actually trying to watch a tv series i purchased not an app. I don't have my old tablet with me so I'll try fooling around more with this tonight.

  • iknow this is not an app.(as i said).but for this, you need old Account password or download from other Sources.your welcome :). Commented Mar 24, 2015 at 20:03

The answer is simply yes. As long as you've added the same account the TV show was purchased from to the new device, you're good to go. Open the Play Movies & TV app, swipe in from the left and verify you're using the account that owns them, and tap My Library. And then everything you own will be visible.
