    "Sony Crackle is legit the best movie app for me. It has more movies from other countries like my hometown India. I think that it can contend to the likes of Netflix, that has regional restrictions. Still need to renew my VPN license for that."

    "With the rise of other video-on-demand services, Hulu still strives and is still battling with other cord cutters (Sling vs Hulu). And I still believe with Hulu's capabilities as there are still other movies and shows that can only be watched exclusively with them. :)"
