streaming information & tips


In order to download something to watch you need to have a wifi connection. This is why people download what they want to watch on a trip, for example, while they're still at home with a wifi connection. Once you get on a plane you probably won't have a wifi connection to download other shows/movies at that moment. Lesson: Be prepared. Once you're at your next location there should be wifi service (hotels, etc.) & then you can download more shows/movies to watch later.

In addition, learning how to delete this content is important so it doesn't take up too much space on your devices (tablets, phones, etc.). When traveling, for example, it's good to delete a movie/show once you've watched it, so there will be more space for you to download other things to watch. Your device (phone or tablet) has a certain amount of storage space, so if you plan to download a lot of content in general, you're probably better off spending a little more money up-front & buying the device with the most storage capability.
