Amazon's U.K. store has added support for digital downloads.

The e-commerce company on Wednesday brought its Digital Games and Software services to Amazon U.K. Now, customers in the U.K. can buy and download video games and both PC and Mac software.

Amazon already offers a digital-download service on its U.S. page. Customers can access a wide array of programs and games and download the titles directly to their computers. Some of the items are paid, but Amazon also delivers free-to-play titles, as well.

According to Amazon, its U.K. implementation is still in beta and the company is trying to work some kinks out.
