Android devices can now stream live NBC shows (selected cities)

If you like keeping up to date with the latest news but you're always mobile, then Twitter and news feeds are your best friends.

Keep track of your shows with Hulu’s Watchlist

With all the TV shows and movies that you're watching (or even binge-watching), it's sometimes gets hard to keep track of all of them like when there's a new episode or when the next special will be.

You've TiVo-ed the latest episode of Game of Thrones, but when you were supposed to watch it, you fell asleep because you were so tired from work. You wanted to watch it while commuting to work the next day but you can't very well bring your Tivo machine while on the subway or bus.
