Many people have decided to hire some of the subscription plans offered by the streaming content platforms available in our country. Undoubtedly, the most important and popular are Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime Video, since they have the largest catalog of content. The fact that its contents are in streaming means that we need an Internet connection as fast and stable as possible, however, we are going to show how to download your favorite HBO movies and series so that we can watch them later offline when we want.
One of the main advantages of streaming content is that we can access it wherever we are with the simple fact of having a device connected to the Internet. Simply open our browser, connect to our platform identifying yourself as customers of the same and start playing the content.
This means that we can watch our favorite series or a movie while we travel, we go on public transport and we are waiting, from our laptop, tablet or from the mobile itself. Now, this implies that we will have to have a WiFi within our reach or use the data of our mobile rate. But in addition, the fact of losing data coverage makes the viewing experience not very pleasant.
To avoid this consumption of data or to suffer continuously stops or interruptions in the reproduction, HBO has included a function that for a long time was one of the most anticipated by the users of the platform, the download of contents to be able to see them later without the need of connection to Internet.
Yes, it is something that at this point seems a lie that did not allow the famous streaming content platform, even more, when it is something that Netflix or Prime Video have already allowed for a long time. But well, as it is better late than never, we are going to show how to download HBO movies or series for free on our devices so we can see them whenever we want and where we want without connection.
Steps to follow to download movies or series on HBO
The function has been included in HBO mobile apps for iOS and Android devices, therefore, the first thing we will have to do is download and install the app on our phones or tablets or update it if necessary. Now, we can open it on our device and follow the steps shown below:
- We access HBO with our user account.
- We look for the content we want to download.
- Once we have found it, we touch on it to access the file of the movie or series.
- In the upper right part of the title we will see the download button next to the add content.
- We touch on the download button.
- The download process will begin and the percentage that is stored in our device will be shown.
- Once the download is finished, we will already have the content to view it offline whenever we want.
To verify that the download was successful and that we can see the content offline, we will do the following:
- We close the HBO app.
- We put the phone in airplane mode so that it has a data connection.
- We open the HBO app on mobile again.
- Click on the Download button to see my downloads.
- There will appear all previously downloaded content.
- We touch on one of them to start the reproduction.
- Playback should begin without the need for an Internet connection.
At the moment this option is available from mobile apps for iOS and Android device but it is not possible to download HBO movies or series from the web version of the platform. In addition, there is also a limitation in terms of the number of downloads, since the platform has set a maximum of 25 downloads distributed among the different devices in which we have activated the application. It is also important to know that if the license for some downloaded content ends, the download will also be deleted.
