The selection of television series that I suggest for improving your English are a little bit more difficult than those suggest for intermediate students.

These television series are even more advanced and can be a real challenge even for advanced English speakers. What about films? Are there films for beginners, pre-intermediate and other levels? Generally speaking I would avoid watching films until you have acquired an Advanced level of English listening and comprehension. Films in English often involve dialogue which is fast, with slang, clever word play and idiosyncratic phrases that are entertaining but not particularly representative of everyday language.
The other disadvantage of films is that you only have minutes whereas television series usually have hundreds of episodes.

Blu Rays also have regions which you should check before buying them. How can you go mobile with DVDs? One way is to buy a mobile DVD player. However the disadvantage is the size and the limited battery life.
Another option is to convert your DVDs into files that you can then watch on your laptop, smartphone or tablet, including iphones and ipads. This is called ripping. So how does ripping work? There is a free version which should be fine or you can upgrade to the premium version if you want more features. Ripping with Apple Mac. Ripping DVDs can sometimes get complicated. Different DVDs use different encoding in order to combat piracy which means that some might be easier to rip than others.
