All the TV Shows or Videos may not be available for downloading and offline viewing. Once you download a show you have 30 days to watch it.

  • Search for your choice of movie or TV show
  • Open the video for streaming

  • You can use that to expand and see the details of the episode or delete the downloaded episode manually.

Setting the Video Quality

You can set the video quality to be of high quality or standard quality for viewing after downloading. The only downside is more data will be consumed to download the high-quality video. Also, depending upon your network, a high-quality video will take time to download.

  • It is pre-set to Standard quality. You can change it to High quality.


You can disable cellular download to avoid losing high volume of data in downloading videos. Go for this when you can download the video using a stable Wi-Fi network.

If you do not have access to a WiFi network, then enable the cellular download option. Your active data plan will be spent on downloading the video
