Watch Streaming TV Shows On Android Devices With TV Shows Stream


TV Shows Stream is an app that lets you watch streaming TV shows on your Android device. It comes in two versions: a functional free lite version with access to a limited number of shows and a full paid version offering access to hundreds of shows. Read on for more details and download link.

This is one of those apps that will come really handy when you are bored, don’t have access to a TV or a computer, and only have your Android device around to entertain you, along with a high speed Wi-Fi or mobile data connection. The free version is fully functional but offers access to 10 pre-selected shows, while the paid version lets you watch hundreds of shows, with more being added.

The app uses online streaming websites and searches the shows across them, categorizing seasons and episodes for each show with multiple streaming sources for each episode. The interface is very user-friendly and you can bookmark shows, search for shows manually, list them alphabetically or browse through and watch the top most popular shows.snap20110107_202642

The only annoyance we have found is that some of the source websites require a human verification in order to let you watch the show and show several ads. You can see this in the image above – yes, that is a fake MSN alert ad in the upper-right region. Switching to full-screen mode in case of these sources isn’t too obvious either and can be a little bit tedious as you need to tap the icon for full-screen mode from the player. However, this is not an issue with the app itself but the way media is streamed by those websites. Note that this problem is only with some streaming sources that the app uses while other sources like MegaVideo show no ads and play the video in full-screen by default and even the controls are hidden unless you bring them up. The app has recently been updated to sort links by relevance and show MegaVideo and other similar sources first while still providing the links with ads down in the list to use in case the top ones aren’t working or available.

  1. Man I downloaded sum app thought helped me watch TV shows on here. I thought it was what all of you where talking about I guss not though cause I cant find any videos. Can any one help Me I have a sprint galexy 2 phone. Im trying to find a app or site that lets me watch being human. The BBC being human as well as the American version

  2. Mine has worked fine until a couple days ago and now all of the sudden nothing works? What’s the deal. I paid for it and have used it faithfully and now its not working???

  3. Google removed it from the market but its still at appbrain. The developers are trying to get Google to reinstate it. I read that some of the servers like loombo and karamba have been seized by German authorities. It’s all bad right now. Hopefully it gets better.

  4. katie s. – i have been having the same problem lately also the app has been removed from the android market? why – any comments – any others with the same issue – dying to hear.

  5. Love this app. However recently am not able to get any of the links to work except Megavideo, which obviously you know has a time restriction…just wondering if anyone else has had this issue or if its my phone maybe.

  6. Hi,
    We have updated the app, right now the links are ordered by relevance, so you can avoid the links with publicity and only use them if there are no more alternatives. Megavideo integration is perfect, and premium accounts supported.
    Anyway, the publicity on other hosting providers diferents to megavideo can be avoided by clicking on the full screen icon on the player.
    Thanks for trying our app.

    • I love the Megavideo integration, it’s flawless yup. I would have purchased the app myself just because of the full-screen Megavideo integration but too bad, paid apps aren’t available where I live.
      Clicking the full-screen icon on the player in case of other sites wasn’t too obvious to me…I must have missed it. Gonna check it out as well as the update and then edit the post accordingly.
