I'm looking for an app that will stream television and/or movies to my phone on 3G. I have a long commute and find that apps I've used (tv.com mainly) have poor selection or quality. Since Android does not have Netflix or Hulu available, what are some other apps that would allow me to watch streaming video without considerable lag?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

  • "Questions which are Android-independent, such as "Does Carrier X have prepaid plans?", are off-topic. Consider taking advantage of other resources that may be appropriate for your question." – Matthew Read
  • "Questions asking us to find or recommend an app, device, ROM, accessory or off-site resource are off-topic for Android Enthusiasts as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam and become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve." – RossC, bmdixon

  • "List of X" sites are generally discouraged here. Please read the FAQ. – ale Apr 21 '11 at 18:00
  • Sorry about that. I wasn't asking for "favorite" - merely what other apps were out there. – Danny Miller Apr 21 '11 at 18:24
  • It's generally better to ask how to solve a particular problem. In this case, "How can I get better quality out of the television/movies I stream to my device" might get you what you need. – ale Apr 21 '11 at 18:38

Today Netflix released an offical App!

Currently Netflix playback is supported on the following phones:

HTC Incredible with Android 2.2

HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3

HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2

HTC G2 with Android 2.2

Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3

  • Unfortunately, I have a Samsung Captivate (AT&T Galaxy S) and my phone is not supported. My new question is if I root my phone, would I be able to sideload the app and test if it works? Should I ask a new question for that? – Danny Miller May 13 '11 at 13:30
