A few years back we saw a huge shift where people started watching TV shows and movies on their personal computers rather than waiting for them to premiere on TV channels and cinemas. Now we are going through a new shift, where the PC is being replaced by smartphones and tablets.
If you are someone like me, who procrastinates or is just too busy, to watch the latest TV shows and new movies then you would love the idea of getting them on your smartphone. There are a number of apps which enable you to stream or download these at a small price. We have listed some of the popular TV and movie based apps on the Android platform which keep you enticed with the latest movie and TV related buzz

This app lets you stream your favourite movies, TV shows and even music videos. You get a range of TV show categories including kids, educational, sports, videos sities, entertainment, health and fitness, news, lifestyle, business, auto, technology, how-to, and more. The best thing about this app is that when you start watching a video, it asks you if you want to view it on the device or stream directly onto a secondary display wirelessly (if your handset supports).
