Android Market’s New Movie Rental Service Blocked From Rooted Devices

I’m not sure why anyone is surprised by this, but Jerry Hildenbrand of Android Central is:

So now people who root their phones, whether to get rid of the crap “open” that’s forced down their throats, or to have a current version of Android, are punished and lumped in with folks who steal movies. Nice move, Google. That makes me want to buy more of your products and use more of your services, so I can be treated like a criminal just because I’m smart enough to get rid of CityID, or want a safe version of Android on my phone.
