|Bottom line|| |
It's not perfect, but the Hulu Plus app offers great sound and video quality, which make it a must-download for any paying subscriber.
The Redbox app is useful for renting movies and managing your account, but for streaming movies, Netflix has a bigger catalog.
Amazon Instant Video is only instant if you're a Prime subscriber or once you've already purchased content from Amazon's Web site, but the lower cost for some videos might make it worth your while.
With its enormous catalog of on-demand streaming music and its built-in social features for discovering new tunes, Spotify is an absolute must-have for audiophiles and casual listeners alike. But free users, beware of intermittent eardrum-piercing ads.
With a good selection of free TV shows and movies to stream, this app is a worthwhile download, even if the videos are in standard definition.
