Tonight-Thumb

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will never be the same. It can't be. Fallon has moved on to replace Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, and tonight's his first day on the job. If the final episode of Late Night wasn't enough to hype you up for the big event, NBC has now released a dedicated app into the Play Store. And with it, you can start to enjoy Fallon in the daytime, too.

NBC is finally taking the time to give its Android apps some tender loving care. The company has finally brought its mainline news app out of the Froyo era, but wisely choosing not to stop there, it has updated its Breaking News app as well.

After the big steaming pile that was the Super Bowl, American sports fans must be anticipating the Winter Olympics with even more keenness. NBC is more than willing to oblige with the latest in an already-long list of Sochi 2014 apps - the NBC Olympics Highlights app (which seems to have a plural problem). In addition to standard replay videos, the app serves as a second screen for NBC's nightly recap show.

You're probably used to TV streaming apps requiring logins and sometimes cable subscription checks. Not the case with the new NBC app. It will allow anyone in the US to browse currently running programs and watch a few episodes from the device. And would you believe it isn't a nightmare to use?

There are about 20 shows available in the app, each with the last 4-5 episodes. It would be nice to have more streaming content, but it is free.

Telemundo-Thumb

Once a good soap opera sinks its teeth in, the best days of our lives are those where we don't miss an episode. I would turn down a job at a general hospital if it meant I wouldn't have to miss today's episode. These stories serve as a guiding light that get me through each day as the world turns. The ability to take these shows with me would be a godsend, and even though I don't speak Spanish, I get how exciting it is to see NBC launch another Telemundo app into the Play Store that's aimed specifically at novelas and TV shows.

Zeebox, a social TV companion app that's already found popularity in the UK has officially hit the US, aiming to make a splash thanks to monetary and promotional backing from both NBC and Comcast.

Essentially, Zeebox serves as an auxiliary guide to TV enjoyment as well as a social platform where users can see which shows are hot, who's watching them, and what they're saying in response. Users can see what their friends (and everyone else) are viewing or planning to view, chat with friends, start a viewing party, or tweet reactions.

With the 2012 Olympics rapidly approaching, television networks across the world are gearing up to cover every live event. NBC has gone one step further and released not one, but two Android apps to help you keep with everything that's going on across the pond.

At this point, both apps are lacking in the content department, which actually makes sense as the games don't actually start until the end of this month.

Much to the delight of TV junkies everywhere, the official NBC app just landed in the Android Market. The app lets you keep up with all the happenings of your favorite shows, check out video highlights, play games, search content across the entire NBC network, and customize the feed to display only the information you want to see. Unfortunately, you can't watch full episodes from within the app (yet), but that feature is "coming soon."

Google TV hasn't been in the wild for long, but major content providers like ABC, CBS, and NBC are already blocking their content from Google's awesome little TV companion. This, as you might have guessed, sucks.

With the advent of TV on the Internet, broadcasters have shown us time and time again that they just aren't ready to embrace the fact that we can get their content from sources other than our TVs.
