    "Amazon Prime is my favorite way to watch videos on the go. Sure it may not have everything being offered by other streaming platforms, but it is the only one I have never had a problem with on my phone. There is no long periods of buffering or errors. If I had to choose one subscription service I would stick with Amazon Prime."

    "I downloaded this and it never worked for me. The videos would just keep buffering and buffering. I had a perfect Wi-Fi connection too. I think its something with their servers. Either way, it was a waste of time."

    "Pluto TV offers 100 different channels for free but most of it is not really mainstream content. But it is nice to have a place that offers curated content you might otherwise have to search to find. There is even a NASA livestream; and it's free."
