    Netflix now allows you to download content so you can watch on planes. Etc. Brilliant stuff.

    Or are you talking about torrenting stuff?

    Prime allows you to download for a few days.

    EDIT: to answer the OP's question, TPB is still around and going strong. Remember you might need to convert downloaded content to mp4 format so you can get it on to your iPad using iTunes. Other methods are available.

    I used sky go extra - you can download box sets and movies for a few quid a month.
    I used a free trial before holiday and cancelled afterwards.

    If you already have content in your possession then Plex (https://plex.tv) is really good; set up the server to catalogue your content the use the app to sync to your devices in a format that works on iDevices, alternatively there is Waltr (https://softorino.com/waltr/download) which can send virtually any format of audio/video to an iDevice and allow it to be played natively (i.e. using the Music and Video apps) with no conversion and the latest version also grabs the metadata so any files on your device look "pretty" as if they came from iTunes itself.

    Other options have been mentioned; iPlayer, Sky Q, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video now allow content to be synced offline for a number of days at a time (some enforce a 48 hour watch limit from the time you start to watch the downloaded file).

    +1 for Plex, however as an aside there are costs involved, the app is free but there are costs on top for things like offline sync

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
