Watch Netflix on vacation and avoid high roaming charges

While most of us try to get away from our electronic devices during vacation time, sometimes it feels good to watch a movie to relax, catch up on a show, or keep everyone in the group entertained.

Watching Netflix on your regular data plan might not be a problem if you have unlimited data or have WiFi available. But what happens, when you travel outside your data plan coverage? 

 

Depending on your streaming settings, it could take 1GB for one hour of streaming a movie or TV show in standard definition. You could lower the setting and get up to 4 hours per GB of data. Netflix automatically selects the best video quality based on your internet connection. You can also manually adjust the video quality to a lower tier in the “Account” section on Netflix’s website. Opting for SD rather than HD or UHD can significantly reduce your data usage. 

 

If you use WiFi offered in your hotel or on your cruise ship, it could either be spotty or expensive, depending what package is available for streaming. 

 

A good way to save data usage with Netflix is to download your movies and shows ahead of time, when connected to your carrier’s data plan or when you have a steady WiFi connection. 

 

Another option is to purchase a eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE for over 100 countries worldwide or a Telenor Maritime package. That way you will be connected and can stream movies and shows wherever you are. 

 

Simply download the Red Bull MOBILE App, choose your destination or cruise ship plan, and stream away! 

 

FAQ

When should I buy the package?

You should install the eSIM and buy the package before you cruise. The package is valid for 30 days after activation – so some days upfront would be perfect. You can top up the packages every time. (For toping it up you need connectivity – so do it on land or as long as you have connectivity with use)
In the Red Bul MOBILE App you will see how much data you have already used.

How is the service delivered?

The Dream cruise ship has a connection to a satellite internet provider.
On your Dream cruise ship we have a 4G network which connects to your handset.
(Note: it is NOT a Wi-Fi service, but the connection comes via your eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE)

Why should I use Red Bull MOBILE on sea?

Red Bull MOBILE is simple and hasslefree roaming for affordable prices.
No bill shock, just prepaid.

What have I take into account on sea?

Please take into account that you have to switch off the data roaming from you primary SIM card.
In your settings you should activate the Red Bull MOBILE for mobile data.

In order to ensure proper functionality, you should purchase and install the eSIM before you board your cruise ship. You will need an internet connection to set up your data plan, therefore it would be advisable to have your plan set up where you have a strong internet signal.

The packages are valid for 30 days after activation. When you’ve used up 80% of your data, we’ll let you know — so you won’t get stuck without any data. You’ll get another notification once your data has finally run out.

In the Red Bull MOBILE App you will also see how much data you have already used.
