Netflix announced today that users can now download content to watch offline - previously Amazon Prime Instant Video was the only subscription video service to allow users to do this. The feature has been made available to all users regardless of which plan they are on. So far only certain content can be downloaded, but according to Netflix this will be expanded as time goes on.

Netflix members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost.

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. 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.

Many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline. For example, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available for download today.

The new feature is included in all plans and available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS.
