Following an announcement at the start of February, Australian streaming service Stan has added offline viewing to its suite of smartphone and tablet apps. If you're running the latest version of the Stan app, you're now able to download a decent chunk of Stan's catalogue to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device to watch when you don't have an active internet connection.
You're able to choose from three video quality settings for downloaded content: Quick n Dirty, Standard, and Best. Quick n Dirty will use around 300MB per hour of downloaded content, Standard around 600MB per hour, and Best around 1.6GB per hour. This will use both your download allowance and your device's internal storage.
Downloaded shows and movies are viewable for 30 days. Once you start watching your download content, you have 48 hours to finish it watching it, after which point it expiries. You can however redownload expired content as much as you like, but you do actually have to redownload it, and as such, re-use your data. Video licensing is weird, hey.
Stan subscribers can download titles across a maximum of three devices per account.
Stan's news follows Netflix's own offline viewing launch at the start of December last year. Australian newcomer Amazon Prime Video also supports offline viewing.
