Netflix Will Now Allow Users To Download Select Content For Viewing on the Go
Get your binge on.
If you're a hardcore Netflix enthusiast, chances are you watch it on the go. But if you're on mobile you're probably expending a lot of data to do so. Luckily, Netflix has now done users a great service: Allowing users to download certain shows to their devices to watch later.
Unfortunately, Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black are two of the shows included as well as Narcos and The Crown. These aren't really the shows I would have chosen or anything, but it certainly seems like enough people are interested in watching them that Netflix has allowed users to save episodes to their devices by way of a "download now" button.
Users can download either "standard" or "higher" quality options based on space constraints, so you can fit as many episodes of that awful prison dramedy as you want on your device. You should probably save the space for awesome games instead, but hey! To each his own. Previously Netflix had denied the idea that it would be allowing offline viewing, but it seems that all has been a ruse. The service is insistent that it will be putting additional titles up for download soon, though, thankfully.
Right now, the new feature is available on both Android and iOS devices and you don't even have to change your Netflix plan.
