Netflix To Finally Offer Downloads


Netflix are looking to tighten their stranglehold on the TV on the market by offering a download feature.


Netflix will now let members worldwide download select TV shows and movies for viewing on Apple and Android devices while disconnected from the internet. 

“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,” Eddy Wu, Netflix’s director of product innovation, wrote in a blog post announcing the feature.

Netflix isn’t the first major service to offer downloads for offline viewing Amazon and YouTube Red offer similar services while several network based apps offer similar features.
