We showed you Bitbop while it was still in beta last month, and now it’s open for everyone to try out with a free 1 week trial. Sure the name sounds like a Wii Nintendo game, but this little app is the best thing for getting TV shows (and soon movies) on your Android device. Not only does it give you the option to stream over wifi or 3G immediately, you can also download shows straight to your Android device for later viewing. Useful for those long car trips where you don’t always have a signal, or flights that play a movie you’ve seen 5 times already. Bitbop will also resume your show where you left off should you get interrupted in your small screen viewing indulgence.
The service cost $10 a month, so be sure to try it out first with the 1-week trial, and check out what TV networks and shows they have available. I think the pricing is fair considering the amount of content available and being commercial free, unlike other paid TV streaming services *cough* hulu plus *cough*. The holy grail of TV and movie watching isn’t in our pocket quite yet, but this is definitely a step closer. Give it a try and tell us what you think in the comments.
