Yahoo Screen has arrived on Android to provide its users with video streaming from various entertainment channels — finally.

The Android app was debuted today, following Yahoo Screen’s launch on iOS last September.

Through the app, users can stream videos that are currently distributed on Yahoo. This includes a wide selection of Saturday Night Live videos, original Yahoo web shows such as Jack Black’s Ghost Ghirls and John Stamos’ Losing It With John Stamos, and clips and episodes from The Colbert ReportThe Daily Show, and series from MTV, Spike, and other Viacom properties.

Yahoo inked the Saturday Night Live partnership in April 2013, as we previously reported.

Unfortunately for Yahoo, competitors Hulu and Netflix have long been available on Android, so it’s a bit late joining the party here.

Yahoo Screen has also recently launched on Apple TV and Roku.
