Tesco has today announced a new features has been added to their Blinkbox streaming service that now allows customers to download and watch movies and TV programmes bought on Blinkbox offline.
The new Tesco Blinkbox offline download service is available on both iOS and Android tablets and enables the content to be viewed when an internet connection may not be available to stream the media.
Adrian Letts blinkbox co-founder and CEO explains :
“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.”
Even though the move is hardly revolutionary in the terms of letting you watch your purchased content, it helps Blinkbox customers view content without an Internet connection.
