Android App Review: Dexter

7 Comments

So I guess we are going to eventually have an app for every channel or now I guess every show. Sure nice app, but this is not they way I would like to see this industry go.

I see why the netflix model of corralling my TV/movies under one roof will fail because all the content creators are deadly afraid of ... i dont know ... people seeing their shows.

And to think I was afraid of every channel having an app. How silly of me. I should be worrying about every *show* getting an app instead!

Definitely checking this one out. Love the series and have watched it since it's inception. Hell, I even use the opening theme music as my main ringtone.

I think it's great that they're giving popular shows their own apps. I myself love Dexter and I like that they released an app for the show. Now, if there was an app for HOUSE M.D. ...

if they allowed you to pay to watch new shows, then i'd download it. I'll never pay for cable. I'm not interested in 100 channels, or even the showtime package, just the one damn show. ..and maybe weeds. lol..
