    The Problem:

    I currently live in the country, well not so much the "country", more like internet dead zone area.

    I am operating on a Samsung Galaxy S7 run by AT&T.

    Long story short, we were not imformed properly on the signal strength in our area thus our 4g signal strength fluctuates between -1.08 and -.92. Aka, not enough juice to stream videos properly.

    Second problem:

    We have ZERO internet service on our area. Despite the fact that we are less than a quarter mile from the nearest uverse vrad box.

    So, that leaves me with only my internet via my phone.

    Here is my main issue. I love Hulu. However, they do not allow ypu to download their shows for later viewing.

    And downloading the video is my only option for a clear video picture.

    Is there a way around this? I am using Hulu legally with a concurrent monthly subscription.

    Or is there another app and or sote I can use besides amazon or netflix?

    Many Thanks,

    -Heather-

    Not sure if you've looked but there are internet services via satellite....

    Also in a lot of areas there are internet services provided wireless network systems.

    I think Hughes net is one of the bigger ones.

    Hughes Net does not service our area, I believe dish network does, however we use direct tv to take advantage of AT&T's unlimited data plan, which is awesome.

    I promise you, we have tried every option under the sun. Including buying a 1k wilson amplifier signal booster with no luck.

    It's extremely frustrating. Expecially when we had to lay down 12 crisp $100 bills to switch from verizon to AT&T.

    Damn, you're really in a bind. The real problem with Hulu is that you're really not allowed to download shows and watch them later due to copyright infringement. They pay to have access to the video sources but with the stipulation that it is streaming only. There are no other opting I know of and I've looked as well.

    Amazon Prime allows you to download and I hear that Netflix will in the near future.
    You may want to check AP and see if it meets your needs..

    I have amazon prime. The problem is Amazon charges way more for the exact same thing Hulu offers.

    For example, I will openly admit I love reality shows. I know, they are cheesy.....

    I wanyed to watch all 5 seasons of MTV's Catfish show.

    I purchased all 5 complete seasons from Hulu for $24.00.

    At Amazon Prime, they want $19.99 PER season. However, I would have the option to download.

    See my delima? Lol

    I have yes. The problem is most of the apps require pc access to download software to.

    I don't have internet available nor do I own a pc.

    Just to reiterate, it is illegal to download and store Hulu video for later viewing. See below.

    I would also have to say that the same applies to any online streaming service whether audio or video. The only exceptions to that rule are either where the original artist has placed their media in the public domain or where they specifically allow recording for personal use, like for instance the Grateful Dead who allows their concerts to be recorded by recreational concert receding attendees. Even in those exceptions the streaming service may still have overriding restrictions in their Terms of Service agreements.

    Vudu is also following these same restrictions regarding copyright and recording. See below.

    That's odd.

    I wonder why they charge you a subscription fee then? For Hulu anyhow.

    Maybe that is why the price is higher with amazon, because you have the option to download.

    If that's the case, then I am going to cancel my Hulu, and just stick with Hulu.

    If I could change my cell tower it would help greatly.

    For some reason it pulls off a tower very far away. I've tried recycling. Idk.

    When I order from amazon, i always choose the "own" option, which allows me to download it. That shouldn't be illegal should it?
