Let’s go through some of the best Android app to stream movies and TV shows for free.
The Android SPB TV app is not region-specific and provides content from around the world via a selection of bizarre and wonderful stations. This app offers you a pretty good mix of content ranging from the NASA channel to Comedy for Women.
While you won’t find the latest Hollywood blockbuster, NBC or Showtime on SPB TV, but if you want to take a chance on a wild card, then this is the app to use. A few of the stations definitely appear to be of a more adult nature (how you select to use that information is up to you).
Hulu allows users to watch premium TV shows and movies on their smartphones or tablets without paying a subscription fee. It is a perfect family tablet companion, as it filled with current and classic shows, Hulu originals, movies and plenty of kids’ shows.
If you want full access to the Hulu library, you will need to pay $7.99 a month with limited commercials and $11.99 without commercials. However, there are lots of gems in the free version too. If you are willing to be a little patient, then you can also find some great shows for free.
Created by Grouper but later bought by Sony, Crackle is a hugely popular free app, which is updated monthly with new TV shows and movies. The app features ads which run at regular intervals throughout the content, in exchange for which you get an exceptional collection of media and an app that functions much better than some of the other TV service ports on the list.
Like Netflix or Amazon, Crackle has selected some original content that’s getting more widely known. The most famous of these is ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ starring Jerry Seinfeld. It’s on its eighth season and has featured some major guests like Will Ferrell, Ricky Gervais and Barack Obama.
FilmOn streams a huge range of channels from around the world live, as well as an assortment of classic/B-movies; mostly a peculiar but enjoyable mix of horror and Kung Fu movies. However, the most impressive are the sports channels. On this app, you can check out some very interesting live events.
FilmOn is a free service supported by ads and doesn’t have the same clout as Netflix or even Hulu, but the live TV streams work well. It is a wonderful option for streaming a number of well-known channels. Ensure that you browse for a while and see what’s available. You never know you may be surprised at what you can find.
For your anime needs, it’s hard to beat Toonmania, which provides a huge selection of the dubbed cartoons. Thanks to the app’s clean and intuitive layout, everything is easily navigable, and you can look through shows that are classified by popularity or most recently added. You can also narrow down your search to find exactly what you’re looking for, as there is a comprehensive list of filters available.
This app isn’t available from the Play Store, but if you go to mobi24, you can download the APK file. Ensure that you go to Settings > Lock screen and security and enable Unknown sources before trying to install the file. Once done, you will have access to everything in the library.
Crunchyroll is another excellent Anime streaming app that is available through Google Play. It has a huge collection of the best Anime available for free. With over five million downloads and a decent rating, this app is quite popular.
It is very easy to run the app. Just browse through your favourite shows and they will run with subtitles. The default language is English. You may have to watch some advertisements but mostly for the premium service it provides. Essentially, as you are paying $4.99, you won’t have to watch Crunchyroll advertisements.
