Besides regular content streaming, Netflix subscribers can from now on enjoy their favourite movies and tv-shows offline.
As it has been stated by Netflix on their website, all of their subscribers who update their app through the App Store or Play Store will be able to download their favourite content on their phones and watch it on the go without having to be connected to wi-fi or mobile data, for instance: on an airplane, abroad, in the subway etc…
Implementing this brand new feature has been extremely difficult due to fear of their content being pirated and that’s the reason why Netflix has postponed adding this feature to their Android and iOS app.
How to watch Netflix offline?
To make sure you have access to this brand new feature, head over to the Play Store or App Store, and make sure all your apps are up to date. After updating your apps,including Netflix to the newest version, all you have to do is open up the application, select a show or a movie and click “Download” as shown below.
At the moment this option is only availible for some TV-Shows and movies, mostly those from the Netflix production, and on mobile platform. However as time goes by and as promised by Netflix, more and more content will be availible for download and for offline watching.
