The Basics

There are many streaming services, and nearly every category seems to be covered – from prime time TV to niche services for every genre. XUMO stands out because it features content from online sources. Your favorite digital content is all in one place with XUMO.

With XUMO, you can stream content from over 100 channels from digital networks. The service is growing, and new content is being added regularly. To keep content free, commercials air between content.

As of June this year, the service had racked up 3.5 million active users. For now, XUMO is only available for those in the US, but the company says that it will soon be available in Canada as well.

Plans and Pricing

XUMO is a completely free streaming service. Just visit the website or open the app, and start watching!

Supported Devices

Currently, you can watch XUMO content on the following devices:

  • Smart TVs
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • Android Devices
  • Roku

The company has mentioned having an interest in expanding the service to work with other devices, including Apple TV and Chromecast, but we’ll have to wait for those updates.

Because you don’t need to login to watch, you can watch on as many screens simultaneously as you want.

Features and Content

XUMO is loaded with content from over 100 channels. Some of the channels include Fox Sports, TMZ, NBC News, Mashable, GQ, Funny or Die, and the History Channel. The content comes from digital networks and can be streamed live or on demand. New channels are always being added as the service expands and partners with new networks.

The content isn’t necessarily anything new or original. You can find the videos elsewhere online. The benefit to using XUMO is that it pulls content from all over the internet and makes it available in one, convenient location. The site is easy to navigate and makes finding content quick and simple.
