OK the title may be a little more dramatic than the context that I’m writing about. But the issue at hand certainly feels like I’m drowning. First let me tell you the apps I have installed on my Nexus tablet for streaming: Netflix, Red box Instant, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Vudu, HBO Go, Viki, Crackle and my local Cable TV app to stream shows directly to my tablet. Add to that list Amazon Prime, even though there isn’t an Android app, I’m still a subscriber. Each service has their advantage depending on what I want. TV shows, current movie, old movie, sketch comedy, international horror, you name it. And if you listen to the podcast then you know I am more apt to stream a movie, even if I’m paying to rent it, then I am to get off my ass and put the DVD in the player. Efficient. Not lazy. But when I just want to watch Fast and the Furious it’s a pain trying to locate it among all my options to stream from. Shoot. You might as well add Google Play Movies to the list since I’ve rented from there too. Yeesh. My list is long, no wonder I feel like I’m drowning. This is my Life Preserve. A cool web site and app called CanIStream.It A simple search for Fast and the Furious shows me its not available for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, HBO, YouTube, Crackle and Epix. But it goes a step further. The app (and the website if you are not an app person) shows me where I can rent or buy it from. So if it’s available on Google Play Movies to rent, Netflix DVD by Mail, Amazon to buy, whatever. I can find it. On top of that it shows me the pricing. I can compare to see if Google Play Movies, YouTube, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, or hitbliss is cheaper to rent or buy from. OH BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! If you buy today we will throw in.. OK sorry I got too excited about this. It’s a free app. Free. And as if that wasn’t enough. If the movie you want is not available for streaming or rent you can setup a reminder. When the movie becomes available on whatever streaming app you want it will send the reminder. So when The Fast and The Furious is available on Netflix I’ll get a message. Because I really don’t want to spend the $2.99 to rent it. It’s probably in my DVD collection anyone. Maybe my son will get it for me so I don’t have to get off the couch.
