Movie-Watching On The Road With Flex View

When I go abroad, I always try to make sure I have a few movies and TV shows stored on my PC and smartphone; you never know how long you are going to be stuck at an airport or what type of TV service the local hotel may have. The problem has always been getting my hands on the latest releases and making sure the content is available whenever and wherever I need it. (How many people have ‘bought’ a movie for the airplane, only to find that you need an Internet connection to stream it?)

So on a recent trip to Europe, I decided to turn to the Flex View service from Verizon FiOS, which was something I had been meaning to check out for a while. Here’s what I found out: Not only does Flex View have the latest movies weeks ahead of the competition, but it’s without question the most flexible  download and rental service that you could wish for.

A subscription to FiOS is required to become a Flex View customer but it’s not necessary to have broadband connection to maintain access to any of your purchased content. That means you use your home FiOS Internet connection to browse and download all your rentals and purchases, but once they are stored on your computer, you can watch them anywhere.

The same applies for mobile devices. Once you install the FiOS On Demand mobile app, you can access and download your movies and TV shows over any Wi-Fi connection and watch them whenever you want. The FiOS On Demand app is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone and there are dozens of compatible mobile devices. And it’s Ok to share the service with a few close friends and family – you can have up to five authorized devices on one Flex View account.

But despite the ease-of-use, it’s the quality of the movie library that really sold me. Flex View has everything from kids’ classics to recent Oscar winners, with the vast movie collection organized by genre or special categories such as ‘What’s Hot’ and ‘FiOS Movie Night.’

Once you have Flex View, you can also upload your own personal content, including photos, music and home videos. Everything is available where and when you want it. So the next time you are planning a trip, be sure to check out Flex View; wherever you go, your movies will go with you!

The Online Mom LLC receives a fee for participating in certain promotional programs for Verizon FiOS. All opinions are my own.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement.

But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
