How do you watch TV and movies on your Android device?

Posted Aug 30, 2012 at 3:42 pm in Threads > Entertainment

Recently Google has been pushing for more people to watch TV and Movies on their Android device via the Play store. The Nexus 7 comes pre-loaded with the third Transformers movie. Netflix has been a long-standing Android app. Hulu’s premium subscription service essentially allows you to watch Hulu Plus on a handful of mobile devices.

The topic of this Thread is to get a feel for how we all watch TV and Movies on our devices. I’ve long been a “cord cutter” and haven’t had cable TV for 8+ years. I prefer Hulu and recently Netflix. I have purchased a couple of shows on Google Play, mainly because I am not a fan of some of the network enforced delays (30 days to watch Suits on Hulu!).

Does anyone else use another service to watch TV and movies? If so, enlighten me in your comments!

    When I’m traveling I will rent movies from Google Play and pin them to my device. When I’m at home I have been using the Netflix app on my Google TV box. Don’t really watch any movies on my phone.

      when you pin them to your device, does that mean its stored locally? so that you dont have to stream?

      A great app for watching tv is Droid Tv, $8 for 3 months is very cheap and you can stream or download to device via wifi and then watch whenever without data.

      I’m jet to find a version of the flash app that will actually work properly on 4.1

      Flash is something you don’t notice until you need it.

      I still think the Web isn’t ready for flash less devices. Android should of stuck in there at least one more year.

      It is however a chicken and egg type of thing.

        ^^^^ Agreed, but as far as I know it wasn’t Android/Google’s doing it was Adobe who killed Flash Player.
