There are a few options to watch a movie on Android phones or tablets.  All these options are compatible with connecting your tablet’s HDMI port to your HD TV.  Which is very cool so you can stream the movie or TV show with your tablet, and watch it on your TV.

If you can see the Movies option, then you first need to download and install the free Google Videos app from here –>Videos App
