Netflix-offline.jpgNetflix has added an offline viewing option to the iOS and Android versions of the Netflix app. This allows users to download copies of select movies and TV shows to watch when a network connection is not available. Offline viewing is available to all subscribers, regardleass of plan level. The first group of titles includes Orange Is the New Black, Narcos, and The Crown. 

From the Netflix Blog
Netflix members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost.

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.

Many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline. For example, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available for download today.

The new feature is included in all plans and available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS.

To start downloading today, please update your Netflix app to the most recent version and take us with you to enjoy Netflix everywhere you go. If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center.
