If there is someone you can trust, that will never leave you on a Saturday night to go with another person, he will always stay with you on a cold, rainy afternoon on Sunday and is always willing to cancel his plans during the week to do something with You, that’s definitely Netflix. Because this TV platform on demand has become our other infallible for any time of our life, and thanks to its Android application, will always be with us, wherever we go.
With the Android version: movies, series, and documentaries whenever you want
Well, we do not introduce you to anyone you do not know. The platform developed in California is the world’s first great online content and transmission service, with an advantage over its competitors HBO and Amazon Prime Video, and with a large user base willing to pay for this type of service. Millions of users around the world are paying for a subscription thanks to the wide range of options offered by their applications, available for Windows, Android, iOS devices such as iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as well as a web application to view it directly. from our browser with PCs equipped with Linux, or even macOS. And definitely we can not forget about its application for Smart TV that offers us many different resolutions, including 4K.
It’s impossible to say how many movies and series it has got: every day even more.
And now we can see your content from anywhere we want because it is no longer necessary for our smartphone or tablet to have a data plan or a WiFi connection to be able to play your catalog. By installing Netflix APK, we also have the ability to download any episode of our favorite series, movie or documentary (among those available for download) and play them offline. Now, any trip outside the wireless network will not be a problem if you want to see the last episode of Narcos, House of Cards or Orange is the New Black.
- Unlimited access to movies and series from your Android.
- New titles added periodically to the catalog.
- Search the contents that most interest you.
- Create your own list of favorites.
- Rate the contents and receive personalized suggestions based on your scores.
- Synchronization and compatibility with several devices: start watching the contents in one of them and
- finish watching your movie in any other.
- Possibility of playing offline content after a previous download.
- Compatible with Chromecast.
The truth is that the application is very similar to the desktop version for PC or the online application. It offers us almost the same functions, with the same advantages and limitations (we miss a better organization of its contents).
Why pay when there are free alternatives to Netflix?
We know that there are programs like Stremio, Popcorn Time or Pordede with a bigger catalog than this legal service of video on demand. However, this platform is the exclusive distributor of series of the importance of Narcos, House of Cards, Black Mirror or Stranger Things, although we admit that we miss Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Soprano or The Wire, only available on HBO.
The problem is that the mentioned applications offer us contents of both platforms and without paying a penny. So, why should I pay between 8 and 12 dollars a month if I can see everything for free? Well, basically because they are illegal services and if we resort to piracy we will not pay the creator of the contents. In addition, these services work through torrents, without any type of customer service and may be inactive when you need them most. That’s why Pordede does not work half the time …
Therefore, regardless of the war between Netflix and HBO in which we do not want to participate because we love both platforms and we would not know which is the best one at the moment, this is definitely an excellent option to watch TV online.
