There are already multiple ways in which a smartphone owner can consume video content, but if you are looking for a more unique approach then Tribeca Shortlist has today announced the launch of a dedicated Android app that is now available to download through the Google Play Store. Those interested in the movie industry are likely to be aware that Tribeca Shortlist launched their online streaming service last year. Since then, the service had migrated over to iOS earlier this year and today sees the service finally arriving on Android.
The main selling point with this app is that it offers a more unique line of content which is specifically curated and changes on a regular basis. In fact, the curated lists are put together by actors and directors and as such, if you are a fan of a particular actor or director who happens to be being showcased that month, then you will be able to check out their personal selection and recommendations. The service also offers exclusive interviews with those same actors and directors as well as some notable additional features like the ability to download and watch the movies and documentaries offline. As well as access to the ever-changing catalog which typically stands at about 150 movies at any given time.
Like most video services, Tribeca Shortlist is not free and to gain access to the content you will have to pay a $4.99 monthly fee. However, in promoting the launch of the new Android app, Tribeca Shortlist is offering a free Chromecast to those who sign up for a six month subscription. As the subscriptions is $5 a month. This essentially means you can grab a Chromecast and six months worth of the Tribeca Shortlist service for $30. Not so bad if you are planning on picking up a Chromecast anyway. If you are interested in giving Tribeca Shortlist a try, you can download the app through the link below. The app is free to download and Tribeca Shortlist does currently offer a 14-day trial to test run the service. Interestingly, although the app is for Android, it currently does not come with Android TV support, although you can cast content to your big screen from an Android device.
