It’s often a missed gem this, you can actually download a movie or tv show on Navi-x and watch it later or whenever you’re free. The benefit to this is great for those who are lagging in the internet broadband speed area (ME…) and no matter what you do, you still get that annoying buffering half way through a movie. We’ve all had it! Even after you apply the 0 cache advanced XML tweak, it can still be an issue for some.
Well, if you chose to download a movie via Navi-X you can simply get the download going in the morning and it should be complete by the time you are home from work so you can simply press play and enjoy the movie without sitting on the edge of your seat wondering when it was going to buffer.
In all fairness, 99% of us wont need to download a movie, however the option is there should we need it.
