Netflix is a popular application that allows you to watch various shows for just 7 dollars per month. Once you pay the sum of 7 dollars representing the monthly subscription, you will have access to thousands of shows and movies directly from your smartphone. You will be able to watch the Netflix original series such as Orange is the New Black.

The movies/shows that you watch will be marked as “already viewed”, this will let you know if you’ve already watched a show.

Pros and Cons

Netflix comes with a huge database of content, tones of shows and movies. You can download the application on your phone and tablet. The downside of this application is that you will have to pay a monthly subscription and you will need a Wi-Fi network to stream it. Some users have reported it crashing every now and then.

Hulu

Hulu

Netflix doesn’t have access to the current season of shows in it’s lists, so you will need to wait for the next season to end before it gets added. However Hulu generally has a very up to date list.

By signing up to Hulu Plus, you will have access to a lot of TV shows and archieves. Hulu comes with many genres of movies, contemporary and classic films etc.
