In some great tech news for Netflix users, today it was announced that the popular entertainment company will now give users the ability to download videos and watch them later. Without an internet connection.
In a statement on their official website, they wrote:
“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. 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.”
The much asked for feature is now available on the new updates to Netflix’s apps on the iOS and Android application stores. It is worth noting, however, that not every show is available for download. This is because of the usual regional restrictions that are still in place (funny how no one ever mentions such restrictions in a good light).
Shows that can be viewed offline have a download icon that will be easily visible. Customers are also able to browse downloadable shows and movies in a new “Available for Download” section. When shows are finally downloaded, customers can watch the videos with or without an Internet connection from the “My Downloads” section.
