American TV network, NBC have released a new Android app offering full TV shows on a catch-up basis for free.The app lets viewers with Android smartphones and tablets stream full episodes of current shows like Ironside and Revolution just after airing.
Most shows have several episodes available from the current season for 30 days and the app also offers a NBC TV guide to help you plan your viewing.
Currently viewers can watch around 20 shows on the NBC app, with each having available the last 4-5 episodes. The user interface is a slick tile based affair designed for touch screen.
Android users can already access NBC streaming using the Hulu Plus app, but that costs money on portable devices, so this app is a welcome addition to any mobile TV lovers arsenal.
Some content also comes with a closed captioning feature available by tapping the CC button whilst the show streams. The service is ad supported and as with most android apps, it’s a bit hit and miss if it will work on your device.
The app is available right now from the Google Play Store, and it’s free. So what are you waiting for?
