The consumption of multimedia content such as series and movies from mobile phones has multiplied in recent years, so it is understood that more and more movie and series services are betting on mobile platforms as their main business channel. In this article we will recommend you the best apps to watch series and movies from your mobile or tablet, and thus access extensive catalogs of audiovisual productions no matter where you are.
The increase in platforms of this type is a advantage for users: the greater the number of services available, the greater variety of content they can enjoy –and less money in our wallet, yes-. For this reason, today we select the best applications that exist on Android to watch series and movies from any mobile or tablet, and from anywhere.
Apps to watch series and movies: the 9 best
We have selected the 9 best apps to watch series and movies from your mobile or tablet. In some of them, like the well-known Netflix, you need service subscription to be able to enjoy its wide catalog. However, in this list you will be able to know other platforms that they offer you their content for free. In one way or another, they are all ideal for viewing audiovisual content from your mobile devices.
Is there really someone who doesn’t know Netflix by now? The platform created in August 1997 is the undisputed leader in its segment, and has one of the most complete and varied content catalogs. If you are one of those users who does not know it yet, you can use the free month to try it and use our Netflix guide to learn how to master the app in a few minutes.
That Android application allows browse and play any existing series or movie in the catalog from the platform, download it to watch it without an Internet connection and even broadcast the content to external devices such as smart TVs or Google Chromecast –a device that everyone should have by now.
Logically, it is a paid service, and in order to access the catalog you will have to pay a monthly fee that goes from 8.99 euros to 15.99 euros depending on the plan chosen. As mentioned previously, it is possible to test the service for a few weeks thanks to its free initial month.
One of the great news of 2020 was the launch of Disney +, Disney’s streaming platform. As you can imagine, the catalog of this service has authentic jewels, both series and movies and documentaries. As we tell you in the complete Disney + guide, this platform offers a 7-day trial period.
That week of initiation is a great help to browse the Disney + catalog, test its operation and assess whether or not it is worth subscribing by choosing between one of its two rates: the monthly, for 6.99 euros; or the annual one, for 69.99 euros. If in the end the evaluation is positive, you can enjoy original content such as The Mandalorian or premieres like Frozen 2 and download series and movies to watch offline.
Its rating of 2.7 stars out of 5 on Google Play seems to say the opposite, but the truth is that the HBO app for Android is one of the best for watching series and movies on mobile. Or at least it is, without a doubt, for those who are users of the platform, who see how HBO is improving the app little by little, including functions like downloading series and movies.
At the time we thoroughly analyzed and compared the Netflix and HBO apps, and while the second has a somewhat more limited range of content, there is no doubt that fans of series such as Game of Thrones or Westworld will prefer this option for on top of any other.
Amazon Prime Video
It could not be less, the giant of Internet shopping also has its own streaming movies and series service. Amazon Prime Video is one of the most important advantages of the Amazon Prime plan, and a platform whose content has little to envy to that of other services from the competition. Without a doubt, the Prime Video catalog has grown enormously in recent years, this being one of the reasons why it is better than Netflix.
Its Android application has also evolved significantly, and it already allows you to download series and videos to watch them offline. Ultimately, although it came later, Prime Video has nothing to envy other platforms like Netflix or HBO.
In its desire to offer services of the same category in duplicate, Google decided that it would be good idea to offer movies via YouTube despite already having Google Play Movies. The truth is that the existing catalog on the most popular video platform on the planet has little to envy that of other specialized services, and even has movies that can be seen for free.
On the other hand, in recent years YouTube is collaborating with some of the platform’s most popular content creators to develop your own series under the cover of the YouTube Originals program. Most series, however, are exclusive to all those who have a premium subscription to the platform.
Movistar + LITE
One of the best alternatives to Netflix, HBO and Prime Video is Movistar + LITE, with an on-demand catalog with own series like On death row and Skam, in addition to other internationals such as Riverdale and The walking dead. It does not lower the level in the movies section, among which you can find works like While the war lasts. All this for 8 euros per month, with a first month available for free.
This application, previously known as Wuaki, has long since changed its name to be called Rakuten TV, also incorporating among its catalog some of the latest film and television releases and a large number of famous series and movies.
Unlike the previous options, Rakuten TV offers both content by subscription and by “Box office”, where you can rent or buy movies and series video-club style. There is no lack of free trial month in this service to decide if you subscribe or not.
Google Play Movies
Google, of course, was also entering the sector of streaming services and movies at the time – and in fact, it does so twice with YouTube – and for this it launched in March 2012, together with the version 4.0 of Android, Google Play Movies, an application through which you can access an extensive catalog with the latest cinema releases, and films all types.
Today, the app is still one of the best options that Android users can use. As in Rakuten, yes, there will be rent or buy content before you can play it.
At the time we decided to thoroughly analyze Crunchyroll, and we concluded that it was the best application for watch manga from the mobile legally and totally free. That is why it could not be missing in this selection, and although among its catalog we will not find series and films from genres external to anime, it is undoubtedly the best option for all lovers of this artistic variety.
If you subscribe to the premium version From Crunchyroll you can do without advertising, enjoy the premieres just one hour after their broadcast or access high-quality content.
