    "This was a helpful solution . Netflix is a great app and website, and if you are an android user, then having access to a comprehensive entertainment app like this is essential. I am a student, and having a great deal of free time in between classes can get boring. Being able to login from an app and watch practically anything to pass the time is fantastic."

    "YouTube is the best video platform out there, and they do have a TV option now, but it's probably not the kind of tv you're wanting quite yet. You'll need to supplement YouTube with the apps of all the other tv stations (CW, CBS, HBO) that put their content on their own apps."
