Netflix Flips a Switch, Enables Offline Viewing on Some Movies and Shows

Finally offering something that Netflix owners have been asking for for years, offline viewing is now available on some movies and TV shows. This will allow users to download videos to watch later, great for caching movies for road trips, airplane rides and any other situation where you’ll be outside of internet service. The best part is the feature is completely free for all plans. All you have to do is update your netflix app and you’ll see the “available for download” option beside available movies and shows. More titles will be added to the list over time as Netflix works out the rights.

Currently, the option only exists for phones and tablets (ios and Android), so consoles and such are currently out of luck, but this is a huge step in the right direction and a feature that I personally will certainly take advantage of.,

If your device isn’t compatible yet, just give it some time as updates are rolling out now.

What do you think of this change? Is this something you’ll be using, or perhaps something you’ve been asking for already? Let me know!
