We tested Xumo and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. Xumo is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Mac, Windows, LG Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV, Sony Smart TV and VIZIO Smart TV.
Xumo defaults to a virtual live streaming environment, but it has a wide catalog of TV options. There are curated channels for reality TV, 80s TV, or game shows.
Some channels, including ABC News Live, beIN SPORTS XTRA, CONtv, Dove, HSN, NBC News NOW, QVC, and others have linear, live streams. Others, like PeopleTV, feature select live events such as the Red Carpet at the Oscars.
Classic TV available on demand includes “Bonanza,” “The Roy Rogers Show,” and “The Patty Duke Show.”
Xumo’s movie library is incredibly threadbare. Even its most popular films in each section are movies you’ve never heard of, like Chadwick Boseman in “The Kill Hole,” Pierce Brosnan in “The November Man,” or Rose Byrne in “I Give It a Year.”
Movie fans would do better with other services.
Xumo has 13 Kids & Family channels, including HooplaKidz, Cool School, Ameba, and Kartoon Channel.
Available shows include “Babar and the Adventures of Badou,” “Oddbods,” “Scaredy Squirrel,” and “Earth To Luna.” You’ll also find family classics like Shirley Temple and The Little Rascals.
