Some of our properties had the FilmOn TV 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 done, you can download your favourite TV programs 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 suggested 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.
If you spend a fair bit of time travelling then my next suggestion is to buy an Amazon Firestick, they cost about £30, then get a friendly wiz kid/or yourself to put an application called Kodi onto the Firestick, once Kodi is up and running you can get almost unlimited TV. We have been using this since January and its been excellent. The main plus with this system is that it plugs directly into the TV and as long as you have a wifi signal it will work.
One other App you might want to consider is Netflix, again download this to your ipad/tablet or even to your smartphone, it costs £8 per month and if after a month you don't want it you can cancel, its that easy. Netflix is not a live TV App, but there are plenty of series and movies to watch.
But the most important thing to remember is To Bring Your Own Cables
Below is a list of properties that have free wifi and also have smart TV systems.
Casa Delfin 3
Casa Delfin 4
Casa Diane (Has a Firestick)
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
- Amazon Firestick will allow you to watch some live TV via Kodi
- Netflix is free for the first month then its easy to cancel
