Can’t decide what to watch? Try this streaming recommendation app

Back when cable TV was your only option the system was broken. You ended up paying tons of money every month just to watch television. Just how much you’d pay depended upon which package you chose. Certain channels came in certain packages, and then there were separate packages for premium channels, sports and any other type of niche.

Today, streaming services are much more manageable and affordable, if you know what you’re doing. But, there are so many different ones to choose from with different programming it can be overwhelming to find what you’re looking for. Haven’t found your favorite streaming service yet? Tap or click here to learn about the biggest mistake people make when signing up for streaming services.

Chances are you’ve wished, at one point or another, it was easier to find something to watch online. You’ve even probably resorted to asking friends and family for recommendations if you’re feeling desperate. Today, you can just head over to Bingie to discover, discuss, and share binge-worthy content.

What is Bingie?

Bingie is an iOS app aimed at connecting people looking for content to stream and share. You can search for any show or movie; find out what streaming platforms the content is available on, and share this content with everyone on your friend’s list.

Rather than being a streaming app, Bingie is an app about streaming where you can check out what’s popular in the community as well as what’s popular with people you know. Aside from simply finding and sharing content, you can chat with friends about shows and movies and form your own watchlists for content across streaming services.

All of the major streaming services are supported, like Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Google Play, Disney+ and AppleTV+. So you don’t have to worry about not being able to find something to watch on the streaming service you’re subscribed to.
