The next evolution of Fan TV is here, just in time for the Fall TV season.
Fan TV was created to help viewers navigate the vast expanse of movies and shows available across streaming devices. The app gives users a single starting point for finding and enjoying entertainment on any screen, letting them know exactly when and where to watch their desired content on live TV and streaming apps. If those movies and programs aren’t available to watch, then users can add them to WatchLists, and get notified when they become available.
Originally available on iOS, Fan TV has been downloaded by millions and has received an average of 4.5 stars. Now, Android™ smartphone users in the U.S. can also get the app for free on Google Play™.
And, beginning today, Fan TV is available as a free app for Android TV users. Download now and give it a try.

Over the last 20 years, Rovi amassed an extensive collection of CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and video games. The collection – nearly 1 million pieces of physical media – was used by staff editors cataloguing cover art, artists, songs, TV shows, movies, actors, synopses and descriptions to create Rovi’s leading global entertainment metadata library. Because the collection would be more useful as a part of the libraries of Michigan State University (MSU) than in company storage, Rovi donated it, enabling the university to become the proprietor of the largest media archive in the U.S.
