The best ways to watch films and TV on the go
There’s nothing worse than a long train journey, plane ride or bus trip without any entertainment to keep you busy. If you’re travelling around this weekend, or just need something to distract you while you’re waiting for friends or putting off your schoolwork, here are our favourite ways to watch films and TV on the go.
One of the most popular streaming sites in the country, Netflix is available on iPads, iPods and iPhones. You’ll need iOS 7.0 or later to run the app, but once you’ve downloaded and installed it, you should be able to stream films and TV wherever you are.
Thanks to the huge variety of programmes the site offers at the click of a button, it’s the perfect choice for telly addicts and film buffs who want to binge watch series when they’re out and about. With the site producing more and more exclusive content of its own, having a Netflix account could soon be just as important as having TV.
Though iPlayer has a much more limited choice of films and TV shows than Netflix, it does allow users to download content and watch it offline. This is ideal for people who have a limited amount of internet in their mobile phone tariff and for those who will be travelling to areas without 3G or Wi-Fi.
Easy to download, easy to install and easy to use, the app will allow you to stay up to date with all of your favourite BBC shows no matter where you are in the country.
Free and easy to use, you can download the FilmOn app and use it to stream live TV when you’re on the go. As well as the standard UK channels that are available on FreeView, FilmOn also offers a selection of specialist movie channels, kids channels and sport channels.
As the site generally works even with slow internet speeds, it’s normally reliable enough to watch even when you’re on a bus or train.
Once you’ve found the streaming site that works for you, the only problem you’ll have is finding enough time in the day to watch all of your favourite films and TV shows.
As a cracked or scratched screen would put a serious dent in your TV watching enjoyment, why not invest in one of our customisable protective covers and keep your device safe, sound and ready for action?
