HD Streamz brings free television channels right to your Android device. Check out channels from around the world, all in exchange for some of your phone’s resources.
Free, with a catch
HD Streamz lets you know that there’s an alternative to ads. You can allow your device’s idle resources to proxy traffic from Luminati. If you don’t like this, you can deal with the ads instead.
Straightforward and usable
Despite the sketchy opening, HD Streamz is legit. You have access to some of the most popular channels in America, British, and Indian media. There are channels from various other nations as well.
When you stream from a channel, you have to select a player to draw over the window. You can switch into full-screen if you’d like.
There are occasionally issues with audio sync. The audio will be delayed, so you’ll see actions before you hear their effects. It’s a minor issue, but one that ruins immersion.
There’s something to be said for allowing a third-party to access your idle resources. While HD Streamz doesn’t ask for special access, this still raises concerns. You can opt out of this feature at any time and instead deal with ads, if you prefer.
Does the job
While HD Streamz isn’t flashy, it’s easy to use and gives you the channels you’re looking for. If you can deal with the occasional audio problem, the program does what it says on the tin.
