Downloading movies and TV shows from your streaming platform to your device

Streaming TV shows and movies on your devices requires a strong Wi-Fi signal, and Wi-Fi strength may vary across the hospital. In order to best ensure that you will have access to the movies and shows you'd like to watch during your stay, we reccommend downloading them to your Apple iOS or Android devices before coming to the hospital. This will help ensure that your favourite movies and TV shows will be available to watch during your stay, even without a strong Wi-Fi signal. 

Movies and TV shows can be dowloaded to your iOS or Android devices using your personal data (service charges may apply), or your personal Wi-Fi network prior to arriving at the hospital. Learn more about how to download movies and shows to your devices using Netflix, Crave and/or Disney+ below:
