I've no idea about Android devices, as I don't use those due to the lack of security updates they get (if any after the 1st year.) But the content providers play a main role in what is and isn't allowed. When it comes to what isn't jail broken, the limitations are mostly known, IOS or Android, there's only so much that can be done on a non-jail broken device. Which isn't the case for jail broken devices, anything goes there and anything goes territory isn't territory content providers like or support.

I don't think so.
TV anywhere will not work on any android device that has been 'rooted' to allow non standard functions (TV anywhere is still not compatible with some of the latest official updates either) so basically, if you 'root' your android (the equivalent of 'jailbreaking' your apple equipment) the result is the same.
So no 'benefits' in having either to be honest. 'stock' apple IOS is the same restrictions as 'stock' android. The moment you do anything to either, the 'non standard' kicks in for both OS's...nobody picking on just Apple, applies across the board..
