There is no teenage dream sweeter than watching “16 and Pregnant” on a smartphone while traveling with petulant siblings. With the release of the official MTV app for Android, that beautiful fantasy just became reality; those who subscribe certain cable or satellite television providers can log in and access live network programming and on-demand content without limitation.
For those who’ve “cut the cord” or otherwise don’t pay for TV, the app acts as a portal to content from MTV.com. In addition to news, trailers, and online-exclusive shows, second screen features like polls quizzes, cast and music info, Twitter feeds, and Facebook chat are all included (because, of course, you just have to commiserate with friends when yet another “Catfish” poseur breaks a would-be lover’s heart).
The app is available for free from the Play Store, and compatible with Android 4.0 or higher.
