Tip: Can you download V Live+ videos and Channel+ videos?

Just like on YouTube, most videos on VLIVE are free to watch. VLIVE also provides paid content. To access videos from V Live+ and Channel+ (or CH+), one has to pay. Can you download V Live+ videos for offline watching? How about Channel+ videos?

V Live+ content is not free to watch. You can buy the paid content using electronic currency called V coins. By doing so, you are not only able to watch the VLIVE plus videos but also download them for offline viewing. Yes, they are officially downloadable. Note that the saved content is available only inside the V Live app with your account logged in.

Channel+ /CH+ channels are only accessible with a subscription. Users used to be able to download VLIVE Channel+ videos using tools like Internet Download Manager or Video DownloadHelper. Some users also managed to download VLIVE CH+ video and sub by getting the source file URL from webpage source, which, however, doesn’t work now.
