Netflix is finally letting users watch TV shows offline
Television fans are rejoicing as Netflix has announced that users will now be able to stream shows offline!
Netflix has always been there for us to help fulfill our binge-watching needs and for that we are forever thankful.
However, the streaming service has fallen short when it comes to watching on the go, with users being unable to binge their favourite shows in situations where there may be no WiFi or a faulty internet connection. There’s nothing worse than being addicted to a series and then having to pause your viewing during an antagonising plane ride, or watching that god-damn awful buffering sign when the WiFi cuts out.
Well, Netflix has finally put an end to our misery! It was announced today that users will be free to download select movies and TV shows for offline playback.

The feature has been in demand for some time now and viewers began highly anticipating such an addition to the streaming service after Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos hinted at the idea earlier this month.
Unfortunately, this will not be available for all content just yet. Netflix has only stated that “many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way”.
However, with original content like Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black and The Crown all up for offline playback, we certainly can’t complain. It at least looks like Netflix is moving in the right direction!
You can download content for offline playback on iOS and Android after the app update.
Now, what are you still doing here? Get binging!
