Review of Droid TV

Traditional TV is keep on dying and it is emerging as an internet based, on-demand service. Web-based services such as Netflix and Hulu provide 1000’s of famous TV show episodes – but if you are making use of android phone or tablet you will not be able to view them. The reason behind this is arcane licensing schemes put a stop to many syndicated shows from being shown on “unapproved devices.

Now the DroidTV will offer you free acess to 100’s of episodes from over fifty plus TV networks shows which includes 30 Rock, The Tonight Show and Community in full 480p resolution. The DroidTV supports the devices like tablets and mobile phone with an Android OS v2.1 and the later version, 1GHz processor, screen resolution at least 480×800 and a secure Digital memory card with a good free memory space of 2GB.

There won’t be any streaming videos in DroidTV. You just choose the episodes that you like to watch and the application starts downloading them and saves them onto your memory card. The advantage behind this is that once the episode is downloaded you can play them without using the internet access. Playback of the episodes will be smooth without waiting for the video to buffer. The sound quality is also very well good.

The disadvantage in this DroidTV is that we must wait until the full episode is downloaded before you can watch the episode. Occasionally the wait time is quite extensive. In the background of the application episodes will be downloaded and once the download is complete the app will notify you. So in the meantime you can have fun with other apps.

DroidTV’s home screen is named as TV Guide. There are shows which can be watched only if you purchase subscribe to DroidTV Primetime ($6 – 6 months). Prime-time subscriptions shows consist of Raising Hope, Modern Family, Glee, Burn Notice, Fringe, The Cleveland, Warehouse 13, Lie to Me, Castle, Family Guy, House, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Office.

By clicking on Show thumbnails open a list of episodes that are available with a brief description. Click on to your favorite episode to download. Once the download is complete, the episode will be shown in the Menu, Now Playing. Click on it to watch the episodes.

You can search your favorite TV shows by using the title or by category, but I find the TV guide to be a pretty sufficient. There are huge number of available shows, but you do have a quite few famous shows to pick from. This application is one of the few means to view syndicated TV shows on your Android device. I recommend you to give a try if you really love to watch TV shows on your Android phone.
