To watch BIGSTAR movies from your Android-powered phone, you must first download the application from the Google Play Store. To do this, open the Play application and search for "BIGSTAR Movies" (or go to the APPS section in our site and click the link next to the Android device). There you are able to download the application for free. You are then prompted to log in with your BIGSTAR account information. Once done, you can begin enjoying BIGSTAR titles on your Android device!
A registration/activation code is NOT required to begin using the application on your phone. Simply input your BIGSTAR username and password, and you can begin enjoying our vast selection of titles immediately.
Simply select "MOVIES" from the main menu, select a title, then select "PLAY MOVIE" or tap on the Play Circle.
To access explicit titles through the Movies App, you must first add the titles to your playlist. This can be done on your PC or Android device's web browser by visiting http://www.bigstar.tv and then logging in with your credentials.
Typically, low quality playback only occurs during the first moments of the stream; low quality playback is the result of slow Internet connection speed. In order to comply with Mobile Data requirements of 3G access, we must first encode the movies at a super small 64kbps version which is of horrible quality. When you start watching a movie, the Android operating system will detect the speed of your connection, select the highest quality of playback that it can support and play the entire movie at that rate.
To ensure the highest quality streaming available, you should have the "ENABLE HD STREAMS" option checked. To do this, select "SETTINGS" from the main menu, and then check the box labeled "ENABLE HD STREAMS". Checking this will ensure your device is always using the highest quality playback possible, but may cause erratic playback on slower Android devices.
While most Android-powered devices function at fast speeds with 3G network connectivity, using a full-strength wireless or wi-fi connection or 4G connection will allow the fastest loading speeds for movie playback.
