Earlier on, movies are transferred from PC to on the go devices like iPods. This provides convenience to users as they can watch the downloaded movies on their accessible devices. But with the continuous advancement and development of technology, streaming services were introduced. Apps like Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu and others allow uses to watch any movies, TV shows or documentaries that they want to watch with just a few clicks provided that they have solid internet connection.
However, internet connection is not everywhere, so regardless of your access to wide variety of movies, if there is no internet connection in the location where you at, then you won’t still be able to watch them. But there is still a solution for that limitation. This is by downloading video from your favorite streaming service to your device. If you have downloaded movies from the app on your device, you can watch it even without internet connection.
Netflix is one of the widely used streaming services across the globe. Apart from great movies and TV shows, Netflix provides an option to users where they can download the movies that they want. It is very easy simple to do. To find something, just tap the Downloads icon on the bottom of the screen and click find something to download. This will provide you all the movies and TV shows that are available to download. Consequently, just click the download icon and the movie will be automatically downloaded. You just have to wait a few minutes or hours for the movie to be fully downloaded. After that, you can now watch the downloaded movie without internet connection. However, there is a time limit on the downloaded movie. Make sure to watch it before the validity of the download expires.
Amazon Prime Video is another streaming platform and it is available for 119 a year or you can also have it monthly for only 8.99 USD. Movies and TV shows from this site can be downloaded to a tablet or phone running android or IOS. When you use this platform, you will see a download button on eligible videos in the app and you can download movies both on android or IOS.

One of the drawbacks of this platform is that there are limits as far as availability is concerned. You will find most prime originals and anything Amazon distributed easy to grab. But still, Amazon has some great movies to offer just like 123movies.
Hulu is also a reliable streaming services platform. Currently, Hulu has a lot of thigs going on. It is now controlled by Disney. Recently, Hulu has also offered download features to its users.
