    "Hulu is a decent app for watching movies. However, just like Netflix, it is really better for watching TV shows. I really love movies, so I will keep searching for a app more suited to my personal taste."

    "STARZ app is a free app but does require a subscription to get all the content. It is loaded with content. It has the movies that are available on the Starz and Encore channels on TV and it has all its original series available too. I have the app on my Roku and I watch it often. I actually watch the app much more often than I do the actual TV channel because I can watch what I want when I want it. It fits the topic perfectly."

    "Some might call it sacrilege to watch Game of Thrones on a mobile. I say let Winter take them. HBO GO's great for those times when you're on a subway, and you want to watch something more entertaining than the man nude under a trenchcoat next to you."

    "Its great if you have a free trial but there are other apps out there that do the same thing and do it better. They dont have as many shows/movies as other places, I think the price is too high for what little they offer."

    "This website offers a wide slection of movies for a reasonable price. One can rent and also buy;however, with the changing climate, I am not sure how viable this will be since amazon and netflix are the two leaders. "
