  11. The Buy window shows you the credit card that you have on file with Google Play, which you need to buy a movie or TV show (even free ones) from the Play Store. If you don’t have a card on file, Google Play takes you through the steps to register your credit card.
  12. Buy the movie by tapping Buy. Google Play charges the card you have on file and downloads the movie to your Tab 4 so that you can view the movie.
