Hulu is the streaming service most synonymous to the term "download movies" as it works exactly like the movie download services. Hulu's content lineup consists of both licensed and un-licensed shows and movies. All content is legally available. The type of content varies greatly, with most of it being Hulu's own content available for a monthly subscription fee of $7.99. If you are more interested on audio content, there is also access to thousands of both public domain-locked and non-locked mp3 tracks, music videos and film scores. Hulu has a smartphone app available for both iOS and Android. The app allows you to either download your favorite video to watch later, or stream the video instantly. In addition there are apps for Windows, Mac, and Roku. Hulu also has an app for the Amazon Fire TV streaming media device.
Apple TV is a streaming device that can work as a stand-alone television, a game console, and a digital media player. It has built-in Wi-Fi, an ethernet port and both USB and HDMI ports. Streaming media content to it requires a subscription to the Apple TV service, which is for $29.99 per year. Once connected you are able to stream media content from your Media Player, computer, and networked TVs. Once connected to the Internet, it will search for content available on the network, on iTunes, social networks and Hulu.
Vudu is your go-to option for local movies and TV shows. You can buy movies and TV shows in HD or SD with the ability to download them to your computer, but you will most likely want to stream them from your mobile device. The service streams in HD with over-the-air broadcasts and by purchasing the service you get the ability to stream from Hulu's YouTube channel. Once you stream content to your mobile device, you can connect and watch it on the Vudu app as well. d2c66b5586
