    "I'd never heard of Hotstar but I read an article about it in a magazine and thought I'd try it out. It is a pretty good service for downloading some tv series, relatively unknown movies and an array of sports are also available via the app. I really liked that the service was free! With the free service though, the overall content is limited. So if you are looking for a lot of content you may want to look elsewhere, but if you'd like something free that might be a good addition to a service you already have and for free - then Hotstar is a good choice!"

    "Think of a movie that you probably think that only you know or appreciate. Done? Good, because 8/10 times it's already on Amazon Prime, most likely priced reasonably. The range of movies available here is unbelieveable. From action to comedy to horror, they're all here."

    "I tried this app, and while I was happy that it had some shows I like to watch and some older movies that are ok, I felt like I was better off sticking with something like Netflix for the larger selection. I think this is an example of where you really get what you pay for. Also, I've gotten so used to a lack of commercials that their presence is quite jarring to me now!"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that 1939’s Gone with the wind and Dangal from 2016 were the highest-grossing films of all time in Hollywood and Bollywood? The 1939 American historical romance film, Gone with the Wind was adapted from the 1936 novel of the same name. The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel was written by American novelist and journalist, Margaret Mitchell. The film version was directed by American film director and producer, Victor Lonzo Fleming who is also known for his other classic film, The Wizard of Oz. The film features the romantic story of a roguish man and a manipulative woman during the American Civil War and Reconstruction period. It stars Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. The film is one of the world’s first blockbusters. It earned a total of $1,854,769,700 and still holds the top spot in the box-office.

As for Bollywood or the Hindi film industry, the 2016 film entitled Dangal with the English translation of “Wrestling competition” is considered to be the highest-grossing Indian film ever and the fifth highest-grossing film for non-English movies. The film earned over $330 million worldwide and only used $10 million for its production. Dangal is about a former wrestler and his two wrestler daughters struggle for glory at the Commonwealth Games in the midst of societal depression.

    "I personally have a hard time calling any app the best for downloading movies in general. There are so many out there and I guess it comes down to price and convenience, Google has great convenience but is often more expensive than other services I use. I can say that Google play movies is one of the services I do use often though. "

    "Crackle has been a great on-the-go app so far. The variety of content is great and it really does get updated quite frequently. I particularly like that I can go from one device to another without much hassle to finish a show. A downside is that it seems to be strictly for iOS devices, and that limits me sometimes about when I can watch, depending on my location."
