Typhoon TV

Is it Any Good?

Typhoon TV is one of the newer Android TV applications on the block but has attracted a wealth of attention for its great features, slick interface and wide adoption. The app itself has been downloaded over 10 million times which is impressive considering it only came around at the start of 2019. Though we have noticed a strong of copycat websites alleging their applications have been downloaded millions of times so we will take that with a big pinch of salt. But Typhoon does legitimately look exciting.

With an engaged developer and impressive functionality Typhoon Tv is a great addition to anyone’s library.

FAQ

Is it Safe to Use?

Typhoon TV may be new, but it’s wealth of community support and updates means it’s safe to use. Just beware of copycat sites trying to take advantage of a rising star but offering you to download it from their site. Stick to their official website or an alternative Android app provider like Aptoide or APK Time.

Is it Legal or Grey?

It’s a grey area, but we’d say Typhoon TV is leaning on the side of not so legal. Many apps have prevented users from downloading content as it makes them complicit in the distribution of pirated material, but Typhoon TV have included it as a popular feature.

Also, the higher number of users and the more mainstream it becomes the greater the scrutiny it will receive from copyright enforcers.

Our Opinion

Typhoon TV is showing some really impressive functionality and usability, one to watch for the future and a definite back up.

There is lots to get excited about with downloading offline content and a wealth of community support in the early stages of release for an application is always a good sign as it keeps the developer motivated.

If the updates keep rolling out it will be trading blows with Zion TV and Cyberflix soon.
