There are a number of reasons why people are still attracted to cable TV. Networks have always strived to provide quality programming that offers a variety of TV shows that avid couch potatoes can devour right away. However, there?s one reality that almost of us can agree upon–cable TV service is undeniably expensive.
With the rapid advance of technology, especially when it comes to mobile devices, the need for subscribing to this monthly service is steadily declining. Fast Internet connections now allow users to stream TV shows using the smaller but more portable displays of their mobile phones or tablets.
If you?re looking for ways to save more bucks this year, then ditching your cable TV cord is probably a good move. But you don?t have to suffer from Game of Thrones withdrawal or bid farewell to your favorite crime investigations series. Here are some of the best Android apps for streaming TV shows on your mobile device.
This mobile streaming service from HBO allows you to enjoy your favorite HBO shows, comedy specials, movies, sports, and documentaries, not to mention plus behind-the-scenes extras and more. The app is free to download on Android smartphones and tablets but with a paid subscription you can keep up with everything you love about HBO and take it with you anywhere you go.
This Android app is one of the first of its kind and is also available on iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. SPB TV offers more than 200 channels, many of which are international television channels. If you?re not satisfied with watching through your phone?s small screen, you can use Chromecast to stream the app?s content on your TV.
Hulu streams a lot of popular shows about a day after their TV airing (depends on the TV show). There?s a free Hulu service that you can use on your PC but if you want to really enjoy what it has to offer, you have to subscribe to their Hulu+ service. With it, you can watch more than 100,000 episodes of TV, including current episodes and full seasons.
If you live in a cave located in an isolated island in the middle of the Pacific then we can forgive you if you haven?t heard about Netflix yet. Netflix is the world?s leading subscription service for watching various media content on your phone or tablet. A low monthly membership gives you access to unlimited TV shows and movies. There’s also a new feature that allows you to make multiple users under one account so you don?t have to worry about other people messing with your personal list.
