Streaming platforms have made those long flights with no WiFi, weekend camping trips without service, and signal-less subway commutes that much more bearable through their mobile apps' "download" feature.

HBO Go, the cable network's streaming platform for TV provider subscribers, is among them. The HBO Go app for phones and tablets lets you download shows and movies for watching at home or on-the-go without internet or cellular service.

Those who prefer to watch without any streaming quality interruptions can have a maximum of 15 HBO Go titles added to their download list at one time. Once added, the content will be available for up to 48 hours after the download before expiring.
