Already available on other platforms, streaming video service Presto has just introduced its Presto TV option to Android users. For $9.99 month, you’ll have access to “1000s of hours of ad-free television shows”, as long as you own one of a select few Android-powered devices.
Presto TV was added to the app’s last update on 23 January, bringing the Android version in line with its Windows, Mac and iOS counterparts.
The update may also have addressed start-up issues with the app on Android 5.0, which were widely reported in a spate of bad reviews last year. However, the list of officially supported operating systems still refers only to Android versions 4.1 to 4.4. It gets a bit confusing though, as the Google Play description states that the app “requires a compatible Android tablet running operating system 4.0.3 to 5.X”.
So you might just have to give it a crack and see how you go.
As for the supported devices, here they are below:
Galaxy Note 8 – GT-N5110, Galaxy Note 10.1 – GT-N8010, Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition – SM-P600, Galaxy Tab 3 – SM-T310, Galaxy Tab 2 – GT-P5100, Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4 Inch) – SM-T705Y, Samsung Galaxy Tab S (10.5 Inch) – SM-T805Y, Nexus 7 – Nexus 7 Asus.
