How to Watch Your Favorite Movies Without an Internet Connection

Yes, there was a time when we did watch movies without the Internet. Before the advent of the Internet, most of us (with enough room in our homes) had, at the very least, a drawer full of DVDs of our favorite movies, songs, and albums.
However, you may end up in situations when there isn’t an Internet connection, such as on long-haul flights, when you go to remote parts of the country where it’s low on data, or if you rent an Airbnb that only has Amazon, but all your shows are on Hulu. How do you watch the next episode of How to Get Away With Murder?
Burning discs is one such way, and while it may not be as popular as it was a decade ago, discs are still a favorite solution for storing movies and songs, distributing software and games, and storing information and data.
Some platforms allow you to download your content into your mobile device, so you can access them without the Internet. Here are some legal and safe ways to get around to watching your favorite movies.
● Create a DVD copy.
Using your best burning tool, you can create your own DVD library. Keep these DVDs in your car, in your bag, in your trailer park – just about anywhere but your cloud storage because you need the Internet if you want to access your cloud. This option works great, especially if you’re going on a road trip and need to keep your kids entertained. Just pop in a DVD in your car’s DVD player, and you don’t need to worry about the video stopping or loading due to poor Internet connection.
● Netflix
You can view content on Netflix without connecting to the Internet. To do this, simply go to the Google Play Store/App Store and download the app to your preferred mobile device. Log into your Netflix account and search for any movie or TV show you want to watch for when there’s no Internet connection. Click on the ‘Download’ button on your device. Any downloaded movies or TV series will be in the Download section on your Netflix app. Take note that downloaded content is only accessible on the local storage of the device, so if you download it to your iPad, you can only access it with your iPad.

● Google Play Movies
Google Play Movies doesn’t come with any subscription. Instead, you can rent or purchase a movie based on a pay-as-you-watch basis. Using Google Play movies, you have the option of renting or buying based on an entire series, one episode, or a whole season. The rental is cheap, but sometimes, Redbox gives away promo codes, so if you’re ever in need of renting or buying a movie, you can use them.

● Amazon Video
Amazon Video requires an Amazon video subscription. Once you have a subscription, you can download any title you want to watch right into your device without any Internet connection. However, not all movies and series on Amazon can be downloaded. Amazon only allows a certain selection to be downloaded at different times, so just keep this in mind.

● Saving movies into your external drive
This was one of the ways before the Internet came and how we would use external drives to watch movies on various devices, primarily the TV, laptop, and desktop. You should download any movie, series, or music you want and save it into an external drive that usually comes in 1 GB as the smallest and 1 TB as the biggest. The only issue with external drives is that some can be sensitive to hard knocks, and it can even go corrupt easily, which means your files can’t be accessed at all, or some of them are corrupt. Still, this form of external storage was popular and commonly used.
Final Thoughts
The methods described above are ideal for when you’re traveling, or when you know getting an Internet connection is difficult. It would help people going off to remote areas to conduct research, or those going on long-haul flights, or as mentioned, on road trips. Having some form of movies or songs with you in the form of DVDs or downloaded content into your devices does help provide much-needed entertainment. Sometimes, we forget the convenience of DVDs simply because we have Internet access all the time. If you have a device that can read DVDs, why not burn your movies, songs, and series into them and keep them at places where you can’t get connected?

Nickelodeon Orders Season 2 of ‘It’s Pony’

Nickelodeon has greenlit a 20-episode second season of its new animated series, “IT’s Pony,” which follows the comedic adventures of Annie and her best friend, who just so happens to be an enthusiastic, impulsive, and carefree pony. Season two will premiere domestically in 2021, followed by a rollout across Nickelodeon’s international markets.
The series stars Jessica DiCicco (“Adventure Time”) as Annie, an optimistic and determined farm girl living in the city with her family and best friend Pony; Josh Zuckerman (“Strange Angel”) as Pony, who is naïve and impulsive, but loves Annie more than anything; Abe Benrubi (E.R.) as Dad, who treats Pony as a nuisance, but recognizes the special bond he shares with Annie; and India de Beaufort (“All Hail King Julien”) as Mom, who loves Annie and Pony’s relationship and always has a new prank in the works.
Created by Ant Blades, “It’s Pony” is inspired by a short from Nickelodeon’s 2015 International Animated Shorts Program.
