Your mobile phone is extremely versatile, especially when it comes to exploiting multimedia resources (images, audio and video), social networks and collaborative tools. Calls or other traditional functions are hardly used.
This shows the inclination of people to seek new functions that generate a source of quality training. Even more so when the COVID-19 quarantine has lasted longer than expected.
In this sense, will you believe us if I tell you that now you can watch live television on your PC and mobile phone, with a grid very similar to satellite television?
Actually, there are several applications to watch live television, but there is one in particular that is causing a stir due to its great utility, it is called Mobdro.
In principle, it is an app that you can use on your phone. However, with some tricks, you can also use Mobdro on your PC and TV monitor, obtaining a live and direct signal thanks to the use of streaming technology
What is Mobdro?
You must be clear that the application will allow you to watch live television and should not be confused with applications to watch series and movies on demand or on demand (such as Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney +).
Hence, you can enjoy fabulous channels like HBO +, Cartoon Network, History Channel, Travel Channel, HiF, Nickelodeon, Lifetime and many more. It's like having a cable or satellite TV subscription at your fingertips on your phone and related devices.
Although this application works by linking with other applications, you will not have long wait times in loading content, potholes or slowdowns. Its interface is quite simple, friendly, intuitive and clean.
Something that draws attention is the arrangement of the channels, since they are not by numbers but by themes .
You can choose between news channels, sports, music, series, movies, games, pets, with spiritual themes, technology and some podcasts. It also shows live broadcasts that they launch on Twitch or YouTube.
This is an advantage in case you are not very clear about what you want to see and it will help you navigate through a sea of programming without wasting a lot of time to find something you like.
However, if you want to search for a specific channel, you will have to go to its website or have it saved as a favorite in your account. Once you have it in the bookmarks, you can quickly access a specific channel.
Don't worry if, in the first few changes, all the channels come out with audio in English. What happens is the application is configured natively with that language, but immediately you will be able to access the options menu and change this configuration to Spanish . Likewise, there is extensive programming in all languages.
If you cannot see a live broadcast corresponding to a program of your interest, you can record it to watch it in the future.
Contrary to other applications where the channels are down or with poor reception mostly, here all the channels work perfectly. Only, something more could be expected on the quality of the video, since the resolution is standard and depends on the source channel.
Modes of use
The app has a Freemium mode that is free for users. This modality works quite well, but it launches one or another ad during its use, something that is not so annoying compared to the benefits you are obtaining.
The other modality is Premium . For a small payment, you will unlock the possibility of downloading content to watch without internet (offline), including chapters recorded or extracted from the Chromecast so that you can watch it on television
