Yahoo Screen gives you yet another way to watch comedy clips on Android


Talk about impeccable timing: the same day Hulu announces it'll let users watch TV shows for free on their phones, Yahoo brings its video app to Android. That application, called Screen, is already available for iOS, and unlike Hulu, it's focused more on short-form clips than full episodes. In particular, you're most likely to find comedy bits, along with concerts, original programming and sports content (think: Saturday Night Live sketches, Comedy Central clips, and video from The Onion, MLB, and College Humor). Also unlike Hulu: you can watch for free today. The Android app is available to download now, whereas Hulu isn't going to catch up until sometime this summer. Bombs away, Android users, but don't come crying to us when you remember SNL isn't actually funny anymore.

Engadget’s parent company, Verizon, now owns Yahoo. Engadget remains editorially independent.
