Thanks to the apps that I recommended in my article on how to stream movies on iPad you have made several evenings spent at home less boring. Every now and then, however, you would like to watch movies on your tablet even when you are not within the four walls of your room and, above all, you do not have an Internet connection available.
No problem! There are several apps that allow you to download movies to iPad in an extremely simple and completely legal way. How much do they cost? Much less than you might imagine: some of them are even free, while others allow you to buy individual films or subscribe to monthly plans to access libraries with thousands of Italian and international films belonging to all genres.
Let’s start with the most ordinary way to download movies on iPad , that is, buying or renting films from the Apple store. If you do not know how to access it, open the Video app “standard” on the tablet and press the Store item located at the top left.
The main screen of the cinema shop of the Cupertino house will open with the list of the most interesting films of the moment. To browse them all you can use the Rankings (by pressing the appropriate button located at the bottom of the screen) or the list of genres that appears by pressing the appropriate button at the top left.
The prices of the most recent works are around 12 euros for the purchase and 5 euros for the purchase in HD resolution but there are also films on offer with prices up to 0.99 euros, just know how to look for them. To download them? Just select their poster and press the Buy or Rent button in the box that opens.
I don’t think Netflix needs any introduction. It is the most popular video on-demand service in the world. It hosts tons of movies, TV series, documentaries and cartoons. You can try it for free for 30 days (without renewal obligation), after which it has prices starting from 7.99 euros / month.
What perhaps not everyone knows is that Netflix’s mobile applications, including the one for iPad, allow you to download movies, TV series, documentaries and other offline content totally free and without restrictions whatsoever (they only expire if the device is not connected to Netflix for more than 30 days).
To download a movie using the official Netflix app, all you have to do is select the content of your interest and press the arrow icon located under its plot. Unfortunately, not all the films available in the Netflix catalog are downloadable offline. If you want to find out what all the titles are available for offline use, press the ≡ button located at the top left and select the item Available for download from the bar that appears on the side.
Infinity by Mediaset is one of the best Italian on-demand cinema services. You can download and try it for free for a period of 30 days, after which it costs 5.99 or 7.99 euros per month depending on the promos in progress. In its catalog there are over 6,000 films (more or less recent), American TV series, Italian fiction and anime.
On iPad, in addition to streaming content, it is also possible to download and use them offline. To start the download of a work, all you have to do is select its poster and press the Download button located at the top right.
Subsequently, it is possible to access the contents saved locally by simply calling up the Infinity menu (there is a button at the top left of the app’s home screen) and selecting the Download item from the bar that appears on the side of the screen.
