How to get Movies and TV Show Downloads for your iPad
A large viewing screen and storage capacity both make the iPad an excellent choice for watching TV shows and movies. There are countless apps and services that offer iPad downloads of movies, or streaming TV shows. That means there are a lot of options for anyone looking to watch high-quality videos on a mobile device. But what is the cheapest way to get movies and TV shows for your iPad or other device?
1. The iTunes Store
- iTunes is the most obvious answer for iPad video downloads. Since they are both Apple products, the built in functionality makes buying and downloading media very convenient. Unfortunately, paying for each iTunes download can add up really fast, and may not be cost effective for someone who wants to download many videos to their iPad or other Apple product. In addition, if you are using a non-Apple tablet or phone, you may face compatitbility issues when trying to view iTunes downloads on your device. Visit iTunes here.
2. The Hulu App
- Hulu is a relatively wellknown website that offers streaming TV shows and some movies online. They now offer a service that allows you to access even more streaming videos on your iPad, game console, or mobile phone for a monthly fee. On the positive side, streaming video on your iPad or other mobile device is very easy with the Hulu app. But you will not be allowed to directly download the movies and TV shows offered on Hulu, and your streaming video may be interrupted by commecials. To register for the monthly subscription, or just check out the free version of Hulu from your browser, visit Hulu here.
3. The Movie Home
- The Movie Home is a service for those who would rather not deal with monthly fees that add up quickly over time. With The Movie Home, you pay a one-time fee for unlimited movie downloads. Unlike other services, your free movie downloads from The Movie Home are permanent, and you can watch them on your PC or TV in addition to trasferring them to your iPad, cell phone, game console, or any other device that plays video.

- RealPlayer is a program with many uses for anyone who enjoys easy access to videos and music. With the free version of RealPlayer, you can download an unlimited number of free videos and music to your iPad, PC, or any other device from thousands of websites you access everyday like YouTube and Hulu. Downloading takes one click, and after that you can use RealPlayer to playback the downloads on your PC or use the built in media converter to transfer them to your iPad, cell phone, PSP, or other device.
