This in-depth review covers my experience using the Ullu Android app as a subscriber. I will evaluate features like content library, streaming quality, user interface, pricing plans and overall value to help you determine if Ullu is worth subscribing to for your entertainment needs.
Ullu is operated by ULLU Digital Pvt Ltd and can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
The app allows subscribers to instantly stream Ullu’s library of web series, movies, and original content. Video can be downloaded for offline viewing.
Ullu utilizes a freemium model – users can watch 2 videos for free as a trial before needing to subscribe. Multiple subscription plans are offered including monthly and yearly options.
Getting started with Ullu is straightforward. You simply download the app and sign up for a free account. No payment information is needed to begin the 2 video free trial.
I browsed the library during the trial to get a feel for the content offered. Video quality was excellent streaming over WiFi. Downloads were quick for saving shows offline.
The trial gives you a good sense of the streaming experience before committing to a paid plan.
After the 2 video trial ends, you need to subscribe to continue watching. Ullu offers these subscription tiers:
*Prices may vary by region.
I opted for the 1 month plan to start since it was the most flexible. Payment was easy via the Google Play Store.
The 3 or 6 month plans offer a slight discount for longer commitments. The 1 year plan offers the best overall value if you know you’ll use Ullu frequently.
Browsing Ullu’s content library is straightforward. Movies and shows are organized neatly by genres and categories.
I particularly enjoyed the editor curated sections like “Ullu Exclusives” and “Popular on Ullu” that highlight trending and original content.
When you select a show or movie it displays details like plot summary, cast information, number of episodes and season details. You can then immediately start streaming it.
I consistently got high quality, buffer-free streams over WiFi. Video loaded quickly in up to 1080p resolution on my device. The streaming technology felt smooth and responsive.
Ullu makes it easy to download movies and shows to watch offline. The downloads section neatly organizes all your saved content.
Downloading over WiFi was quick – a typical 45 minute episode only took 2-3 minutes to save locally in high quality. This allows you to watch content on the go without using mobile data.
The only limitation is that some exclusive content is marked “download not available.” But most movies and shows can be saved offline without issue.
The Ullu app supports multiple user profiles under one account, perfect for families. Switching profiles is easy from the side menu.
The account section also allows you to manage your subscription plan, payment details, app settings and more. You can cancel or change your subscription any time.
I liked the level of control provided for managing profiles and subscription preferences.
Ullu’s content library is its biggest asset. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect:
This forms the core of Ullu’s catalog – from drama to comedy to thriller, Ullu has hundreds of episodic web series in various languages like Hindi, Kannada, Telugu and English.
Popular licensed titles include Palang Tod, Monica, The Bull of Dalal Street. Ullu exclusives like Panchali, Peshawar and Pet Puja push edgy themes and production values.
A sizable selection of full length movies are available, though not as extensive as the web series catalog. Genres span romance, action, horror and more.
Notable movies include Contract Killer, Wife Cheating Revenge and Night Drive. Video quality is excellent.
Ullu invests heavily in producing exclusive original programming not available elsewhere. These span short films, episodic web series and more.
Some buzzworthy exclusives include Paro, Peshawar, The Bull of Dalal Street, Monica and Charmsukh Jane Anjane Mein.
This original content provides value and gives Ullu a unique identity in the streaming space.
Here are some final impressions from extensively using Ullu on Android:
Overall, I was very satisfied with the Ullu Android app. For the price, you get quality original programming and an immense selection of web series and movies covering all genres – more content than you could watch in months. Smooth streaming, fast downloads for offline viewing, and intuitive interface makes accessing the content library a breeze.
While the subscription fee is not dirt cheap, you get what you pay for in terms of production values and exclusives. If you enjoy South Asian web series and want edgier original content, Ullu is easy to recommend trying out.
