Blinkbox adds offline viewing for tablets

Blinkbox-download-requestTesco-owned movie and TV streaming service Blinkbox has added offline support for iPads and Android tablets, allowing viewers to download content to these devices.

The ‘Watch Offline’ update allows customers to download movies and TV shows bought on Blinkbox to up to five devices, and rented films to one tablet.

Commenting on the move, Blinkbox co-founder and CEO Adrian Letts said “the ability to watch offline on tablets is one of the most frequently requested features and will transform the way many customers use Blinkbox – whether that’s by allowing more freedom to watch what they want in the home – or taking their entertainment on the move.”

“I am pleased that we have been able to introduce download to tablet in time for the Christmas holidays so those who want to sneak off to bed, the pub or even another country can download a movie or their latest box set obsession and take it with them to enjoy without a connection.”
