    "Still the undisputed video streaming giant of all time. Nothing can come close to the superiority of Netflix. I've had it for 3 years now and its catalog of movies, TV shows, and originals is unparalleled. So many excellent shows to choose from: Stranger Things, Mad Men, Orange is the New Black, Lucifer, etc. Personally, I would never support illegal streaming apps like Showbox, PlayBox and Cinema APK because I have respect for the diligence and hard work of people who work in the entertainment industry. AND SO SHOULD YOU. 👉"

    "For those who can't afford Netflix or Hulu (or are just plain stingy like me), Cinema APK is an excellent movie app for streaming. Its catalogue is constantly updated so you can watch the latest films in HD. You wouldn't be able to find it on Play Store since it's an APK file but it isn't hard to find, download and install. Hypocrites who claim that they've never watched a bootleg movie ever, back off! "

    "A good streaming app that's FREE. The downside is you have to watch lengthy ads and the videos are grainy. But who cares? It's FREE! There are not a lot of movies per se, but who am I to complain if it's FREE? Download it and give it a shot. It's definitely no Netflix, but it's FREE!!! 🤣"

    "This is not a streaming app. It's an aggregator. It gives you options on where to watch movies and TV shows that you search. Usually, Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play and Crackle come up. Plus, it has a live TV stream feature. Cool app! "

    "Why have Hulu? GAME OF THRONES!!! I don't have cable TV but that's the only show I watch. I already have HBO Now which at $15 per month isn't bad. With Hulu, I can stream GoT. Plus, I can watch tons of other movies and complete TV series. Nothing against Netflix, but it doesn't have GoT. "

    "Kodi is a great software that assembles all your favorite sites and apps for streaming and entertainment, both legal and illegal. Kodi itself isn't illegal, so you need not worry your a** off if you download it. Perhaps choose the apps that you're gonna include. You can customize it anyway. It's a great one-stop hub for all your entertainment needs. "

    "This dumb app keeps crashing! Wouldn't even let me sign up. It also says it has no content. I would have wanted to watch anime in it. A big pile of 💩. "
