If you’re open to watching content from a local news station in another state, you’ve got a wide variety of options in the Market. Personally, if I’m going to stick with a single network, I want to pick one that I I know will offer me consistently interesting content. The Discover Channel app (titled, “Discovery”) certainly does that. It’s got a smooth interface, enough new clips each day to put me to sleep at night, and the picture and sound quality are excellent. This free app is worth a few minutes of your time for testing.
If you are big on independent music and don’t mind a simple interface or playing media in an external player, LP33.tv will occupy your mind in the doctor’s office waiting room or on the train to work. I seem to notice slow performance – even when I’m on Wi-Fi – but the content is great.
