If you want to be able to stream movies on your phone but don’t know where to begin then don’t worry, you have come to the right place.

Whether you’ve been streaming movies to your mobile for years or you’re just getting started, it’s important you know exactly what you’re doing in order to protect your phone and your data plan.

With that in mind, here are 5 top tips for streaming movies on your phone:

Make Sure You Always Have Enough Battery

One of the best things you can do when you’re streaming movies on your phone is to ensure you always have enough battery for the movie you are watching. There is nothing worse than getting part way through a good movie and realising that you don’t have enough battery to finish it. The best thing to do is to check your battery life before you start, ensuring you have at least 50% to get you by. If you have the opportunity, find a place to charge your phone on the go.

Buy A Long-Lasting Portable Charger

One of the best ways to ensure you always have enough battery life is to buy yourself a long-lasting portable charger. Most of the high-quality portable chargers will give your phone at least 4 to 5 full recharges, so it’s definitely worth splashing out the money to get one that is better quality. Not only will you be able to take it with you no matter where you go, but you’ll also be able to leave it charging in your bag as you’re walking around or working. Find out more information when it comes to using a portable charger for your phone.

Download Movies When You Have WiFi

If you know you’ve got a long journey ahead of you and no chance to connect to WiFi, a great way to save your data is to download the movies to your phone when you are connected. Once they’re downloaded, you will be able to stream them even if you’re not connected to the internet. Ideal for those that have to use flight might when on a plane, this is the best way to ensure you protect your data. Another great way to not have to worry about data is to ensure you have an unlimited plan when it comes to streaming.

Make Sure You Always Have Your Headphones With You

If you’re streaming movies on the go you need to ensure you always have your headphones with you so you don’t disturb those around you. When you are using your headphones, ensure you have them turned down to the lowest possible volume as you may be surprised how loud they can be. If you’re unsure, ask those around you if they can hear them.

Use Movie Streaming Apps, Rather Than Direct From The Internet

Finally, use streaming apps like Netflix and Hulu, rather than streaming directly from the internet. Not only are they more secure, but they are designed to be used on the go.
