Shows like BigBoss are very popular and you can watch them without annoying delays.
One of the best things about Voot is that it offers the latest episodes of popular TV shows. However, you may need to wait a few hours for the show to be uploaded to the platform. For instance, if the episode of your favorite TV series is aired on Tuesday night, it will be uploaded to Voot on Wednesday morning. Although this means that you won’t be up to date with what is happening until the episode is available, you can rest assured that it will uploaded and that you can watch it with great quality. Besides, at the moment there are not too many ads and they only appear at the start of the episode. After that, you can watch without interruptions.
A downside of Voot is that after clicking on an episode, you need to wait some time for the show to start. However, this is not a major deal since once the show starts, there won’t be interruptions. It should also be noted that while the recent episode section is organized according to the date, there are no actual dates being displayed. If you are watching several episodes one after the other, you will need to keep a tab or open the videos and look for the dates. In spite of this, Voot is a practical solution to enjoy content from Colors TV, MTV and Nickelodeon.
Voot gives you the chance to watch full episodes of popular TV series and it is easy to use. The design is good and it is good to see that it supports a wide variety of languages. However, it requires some updates and new features to enhance the user experience. The slow loading and the fact that some adverts are displayed will put some people off.
