Yahoo Screen lets you stream SNL, Stewart, Colbert, the New York Times, and more

Yahoo has released Yahoo Screen, its on-demand video streaming app for Android into the Google Play store. Yahoo Screen launched on iOS in September, so it's arrival on Android feels a little overdue. Screen showcases videos from a variety of sources, including Comedy Central, The Onion, The New York Times, and Saturday Night Live, as well as Yahoo original content. You can share videos you like via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and email.

Yahoo Screen displays content in a grid, letting you find videos to watch by topic or a specific content provider, like BuzzFeed or Comedy Central, while the top channel is devoted to popular videos. Swipe to the left and right on the grid to a move through a channel's selection, and up and down to find channels. These gestures remain the same while watching a video, allowing you to navigate through videos without needing to go back to the grid.

For now, it seems that Yahoo Screen only supports devices with sub-1080p screens, though we imagine an update to enable support for the flagship devices of this year (and last year, if we're being frank) isn't that far off. You can grab the app from the Google Play Store now.

Question is, can you chromecast?

If we can Chromecast I'll be so happy.

Nope to Chromecasting. And my S5 has this app, so 1080 screens are a go already.

Well done yahoo. Can't complain with free.

I'm just glad they limited the amount of Yahoo Purple they used.

Awesome! All the leftist crap I don't want to see, all in one place. I just need to avoid Yahoo now. Thank you Yahoo!

I understand. Colbert is funny though.

My thoughts exactly!! I dumped Yahoo a few months ago because of the liberal crap they keep pushing.

udazavlanje says:

Leftist or not, Colbert and John are the best when it comes to fishing for hypocrites on all sides - "news" creators too. It's not their fault if the catch is coming from Fox and friends most of the time. they will spare no one, that's for sure.

...because right is where they look for targets of opportunity 85% of the time. Occasionally spanking someone on the left is mostly so they can claim a semblance of balance. And to be fair because, it's also because they simply fail to see the at least equal hypocrisy and bizarre twists of logic engaged in by "their side."

You obviously haven't read a yahoo news article's comments section lately. Those people make Hannity look like a pinko commie.

It's not too bad. Not long downloaded it.

It should be noted that Yahoo Screen appears to be a US-only app - although I can see it via the link in this article (but not if I search for it on the UK Play Store web site/app), it claims none of my UK devices are eligible, so I suspect region blocking is going on here.
