The holiday season is a prime time for catching up on the shows and movies you've missed this year. Whether you have a few hours to kill while waiting for your flight at the airport, or just need some time to unwind after visiting family or the in-laws, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services are making it easier than ever to watch on the go. Anytime, anywhere.
Streaming services have already transformed the way we watch TV shows and movies, but one of the biggest downfalls was that streaming required a strong internet connection. If you were offline, you were just out of luck. But now, some of the top streaming services have introduced features that let you download videos to your tablet or smartphone.
Here's how you can download everything you'd like to stream offline from Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and Netflix.
Amazon Prime Video
1. Open the Amazon Video app on your smartphone or tablet.
From here, you can either browse through Amazon's video selection or tap the Library icon to see videos you've previously purchased.
2. Tap on the video you'd like to download.
Not all titles are available to download and some devices are not compatible. If the video is available to be downloaded and is compatible with your device, you'll see a button that says "Download" within the video details.
3. Tap Download.
Your video will begin to download once you've tapped the Download button.
If you'd like to download additional videos, tapping Download will add them to your queue, and they'll be downloaded in the order you requested.
