[Q] Movies via Android Market - Country or network specific?

I have an HTC Desire HD on Orange UK. In the market I have only ever seen apps & books. I have never seen movies or music listed. I have, until now, assumed that these were probably only available in certain countries because of licensing agreements.

However, upon arriving at work this morning I was discussing the rebranding to Google Play with a colleague, only to find out that they have, and have done for a while, a section in their Market/Play Store for movies. They have an HTC Desire S on T Mobile UK.

Why would I not have movies available via my market? I'm guessing that it wouldn't be handset compatibility, so would it be that Orange are blocking this for some reason? Who else, in the uk, has the movies option, and who doesn't? What is the common ground between each group?

They do not have music as a Market section, so I guess that I was right about this, and it is not available to the UK at all?

Thanks,
SilentBob
