Travel Tip: How to Download Movies Onto Your Tablet

digibooAdmit it, flying is usually when you catch up on guilty pleasure movies that you don’t have time for otherwise.

Here’s how to download movies and watch the ones you actually want to see—even when you’re traveling and offline.

More and more people are using personal devices—like iPads and Androids—for in-flight entertainment, instead of what’s on the airplane seat backs or in the hotel rooms.

For Apple users, iTunes is usually the first stop to purchase, download, and watch movies, which is a no-brainer.

Digiboo is a newer service that lets you download movies straight onto your device while you’re at the airport. They have Wi-Fi-enabled kiosks where you select and download movies to watch whenever you want.

With the Kindle Fire, you can download videos straight from Amazon. Access Amazon Instant Video, purchase the movie or TV show while you’re connected to Wi-Fi, and download it to watch later when you’re offline.

The good news is, more and more airlines now stream content directly to your personal device using their own apps—including United, Southwest, and Delta.
