Question Description

I'm looking for a recommendation to replace the iPad app "Matcha". 


It shut down without notice last May and I miss it! 
Matcha was a great app that would allow a user select which viewing services they subscribed to and then search for a TV show (or movie) on all of the streaming services (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, etc.) and display which of the user's services had the searched item available to be streamed. Each of the various services have different quantities of episodes and I'd like to be able to easily find other sources for more seasons. This consolidated all searches and preferences into one place AND could add tv episodes and movies to watch lists.

Oops, there is no replacement.

There’s a lot to like about this app if you’re subscribed to a ton of streaming services, such as the ability to use a unified queue of content. This is a nice feature for saving videos from Xfinity and Amazon Prime, both of which don’t have an easily accessed queue on their own. Videos previously saved on Netflix will automatically show up in Matcha’s queue, but unfortunately stuff from Hulu Plus does not. (I suspect this has something to do with Hulu being the only service to automatically add new videos to your queue as they become available.)
Another nice thing Matcha offers is the ability to read information from imdb, check out reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, and watch trailers when you select a video. This is far from an original set of features, but it is a helpful addition. It would be nice if Matcha could eventually pull in information like this using fan-generated Wikia sites, such as those for Star Trek, which could add even more to the viewing experience.
really only had a few small issues with the Matcha iPad app.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
