Watch Movies On The Go

Thanks to the various streaming services and digital movie rentals from Amazon, Apple and Google, it is now possible to watch a movie while traveling using nothing but a smartphone, this is really exiting for me because our family and I recently contacted outer banks rentals, we are having our next vacation in 2 months and we have always had bad experiences in the way to our trip simply because the kids always get way too bored on the road, this time we will be renting a campervan in Perth and going to the beach for two weeks, so I already started reading reviews from the site where I’ll be buying the coolers I am taking with me.

Smartphones are getting much better these days. They have high resolution screens and offer a truly immersive mobile movie-watching experience. There are, however, things you can do to improve that experience further.

Use Quality Headset

Audio is 50% of the experience, so make sure you use a good pair of earphones or headset when watching movies on the go. We recommend a pair with a good noise cancellation feature so that you can fully enjoy the movie and not be disturbed by the sound of traffic or other noises. There are some interesting pairs that don’t cost a lot too, including the SBH-80 wireless headset from Sony; this one works really well for movies thanks to the detailed sound rendering.

Comfort is an essential factor to consider when choosing the right pair of earphones or headset to use. Most movies last for more than 2 hours these days; you need a pair of earphones you can wear comfortably to avoid fatigue and similar issues.

You can also choose to use replacement ear tips if you want to keep the pair affordable. This way, you can simply go for the earphones you like the most and pick up some comfortable replacement ear tips to make the earphones more comfortable than standard.

Store Offline

Almost every streaming service allows its users to save content to internal storage beforehand. This is the way to go if you want to watch movies on the go, especially if you’re traveling. Since the movies are stored in the phone’s internal storage, you can turn the internet connection completely off or turn on Airplane Mode and still be able to enjoy the movie without a problem.

Storing movies offline is also a great way to avoid buffering or breaking your data limits. You can download movies while connected to a Wi-Fi network and have several titles ready to be watched the next time you’re on the road or you have time to kill.

Speaking about killing time….

Plan Ahead

The last thing you want is to have to stop halfway into the movie because you need to do something else. The best way to avoid this is by simply planning ahead. Figure out how much time you have and choose a movie that fits. You also have thousands of TV series to choose from, so there is no shortage of content to watch.

Thanks to the better screens we now have on smartphones and tablets, watching movies on the go is very enjoyable. Add a good pair of earphones, and prepare the movies you want to watch beforehand, and you’ll have no trouble at all enjoying a great movie experience no matter where you are.
