Some properties had the FilmOnTV App downloaded to either a stick or a plug in device, but from the 1st May this App no longer works in Spain. With this in mind I have a number of options to offer you.
If you live in the UK you have access to BBC iPlayer both in TV and Radio form. Most people these days have either an iPad or Tablet so my suggestion is to download the BBC apps to your device. You cannot download these apps over here (Lanzarote) as the IP address will stop you from doing so. Once you've done this you can now download your favourite TV programs (while in the Uk) to watch in Lanzarote as and when you wish. Most important, remember to bring any cables that you need to attach your device to the HDMI socket in the back of the television.
I also suggest that you download the BBC iPlayer Radio, this is an excellent app and if you have a small bluetooth speaker bring this with you, these speakers are not too expensive but the better quality ones give a much better sound.
One other App you might want to consider is Netflix, again download this to your ipad/tablet or even to your smartphone, it costs £10 per month and if after a month you don't want it you can cancel, its that easy. Netflix will not give you Live UKTV but there are plenty of series and movies to watch.
BUT and this is important so please continue to read. The above are only suggestions and download speed and weather conditions can make streaming movies through Netflix limited. One night it will work really well and the next you get nothing. Although most of my properties have wifi I cannot guarantee the quality or download speed, this is totally out of my control. All the above ideas are suggestions and I cannot say for certain that they will work at your particular apartment of villa.
Main points to remember
- Download the apps that are relevant to you
- Bring your own leads for charging and streaming (we do not supply these)
- BBC iplayer will not allow you to watch live TV, download any programs you want to watch while in the Uk then you can watch them once you get here.
- Netflix is free for the first month then its easy to cancel. Streaming Netflix can be problematic because of the download speed in some apartments Villa's.
