Blinkbox now lets you download films and TV shows to your tablet, so you can watch without having to connect to the internet.

The 'Watch Offline' update lets you download bought films and shows on up to five devices, and download rented films to one tablet.

The Tesco-run service has also signed a deal with Entertainment Film Distributors, which means it will now offer all major new films released in the UK.

Titles added under the partnership include 'American Hustle', 'Transcendence', 'The Butler', 'Her' and 'August: Osage County'.

"The ability to watch offline on tablets is one of the most frequently requested features and will transform the way many customers use Blinkbox – whether that's by allowing more freedom to watch what they want in the home – or taking their entertainment on the move," Adrian Letts, Blinkbox co-founder and CEO, said.

"I am pleased that we have been able to introduce download to tablet in time for the Christmas holidays so those who want to sneak off to bed, the pub or even another country can download a movie or their latest box set obsession and take it with them to enjoy without a connection."

Blinkbox also recently inked a deal with Channel 4 to bring shows like 'The Inbetweeners', 'Peep Show' and 'Derek' to the service.
