Netflix Introduces New Download Option For Internet-Free Streaming

netflix-logoExciting news for 86.7 million Netflix customers worldwide. The streaming service just announced its adding a download option, allowing viewers to continue their binge-watching offline. It’s available on all plan options and on all tablet and mobile devices currently able to run Netflix.

“While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we’ve often heard they also want to continue their Stranger Things binge while on airplanes and other places where internet is expensive or limited,” Eddy Wu, director of product innovation, said. “Just click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series and you can watch it later without an internet connection.”

Unfortunately, not all titles on the streaming service are currently available to watch offline. Downloadable content can be found via the new “Available for Download” category inside the app. When the option is available for an episode or movie, tap the download button.

Love, love, love this new feature. With a couple of long-haul flights in my near future, I fully intend on using this new option. Sometimes the in-flight entertainment options are horrible. Check out the video announcement below.
