    "Hulu is something that's a pretty niche marketplace for online content. Netflix honestly does it better, and is pretty much the king of streaming. "

    "I believe this is a great app for users who like to watch movies. Movies such as foreign films and documentaries. This way you will never be bored even without WiFi or internet! Just make sure to download the movies beforehand and you should be okay even in flight mode."

    "This is a good site, and I use it often, but I'm not really crazy about how they implement the offline mode. I'm not really sure how to improve it, but what they have now is just not working well for me. Many stars for the site itself!"

    "Some content on Amazon prime can be watched offline, but not all of it. If you have amazon prime anyway, then yes, of course download the app and see if the shows or movies you want can be downloaded for later. If you're considering purchasing prime just for this feature though, you may be disappointed. "

    "Can't recommend Iflix as it's not available in the USA! So unless you are in a country it accepts, you're out of luck. Even if it was available, I highly doubt it has the catalog of Netflix or Hulu. Heck, just rent a movie/show from iTunes! "
