The streaming app to rule them all. With Yahoo Video Guide you can quickly find and stream all your favorite TV shows and movies in one beautiful app.
If you subscribe to a lot of different streaming video services, you know that picking something to watch is complicated. Yahoo Video Guide makes it a lot easier by showing you all the available options for the services you actually use.
When you first open up the app, it’ll scan your phone for streaming video apps (like Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go, ABC, Fox, etc), and then build out a list of recommendations for stuff to watch based on the apps you have installed (you can always add in more services manually if you want).
From there, you can search for movies and shows based on the featured tab, by genre, directly from the search bar, or by the awkward GIF-powered “Mood Picker.” You can also rule out paying for anything by filtering away rentals or buy options. The recommendations themselves are a bit generic and aren’t based on your viewing habits, but it essentially makes it so you can browse all the video options on every service at once, which is awesome when you’re in the mood for a particular genre.
Once you pick something to watch, tap the play button and it’ll automatically open in the video app it’s available on. This is a much better option than apps we’ve seen before and should make hunting for something to watch between multiple services a lot easier.
