Offline Viewing Comes to Netflix on Mobile Devices

Hallelujah! The much awaited Netflix feature is finally here.

Netflix subscribers can finally download shows and movies onto their iOS and Android devices for offline viewing!

“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,” said Eddy Wu, director of product innovation, in a post. “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 feature is not currently available for all movies and TV shows but, from what we’ve seen, a good majority of popular shows and movies available for download.

In order to enable the download feature, users will need to update to the latest version of the Netflix app which became available today.

In our tests to check out the download feature, the season three premiere of Penny Dreadful, a 58-minute episode, took up 245.5 MB of storage. Depending on how much storage you have on your phone, most users should be able to download many episodes and movies for just about any occasion.
