Netflix App Makes Offline Downloads Available


Netflix subscribers are getting Christmas early this year; the company has finally announced that it will be making some of its shows available for download on Apple and Android devices without being connected to the internet. Netflix will stand alongside Amazon Prime and YouTube Red, who have both been offering video downloads to iOS and Android members.

Netflix will offer its new program to iOS and Android users who have the updated version of the Netflix app. They will also have to have an iOS 8.0 or Android 4.4.2 versions of phones or tablet devices. While users must use Wi-Fi to download the updated version of Netflix, they won’t need it for downloading videos.

Not all the movie titles are available for offline streaming. Shows like “Daredevil,” “Fuller House,” and the “Gilmore Girls” reboot are a few of the titles. Disney movies like “Jungle Book” and “Lilo & Stitch” are also omitted from the list. However, new versions of the Netflix app do offer some interesting features. There will be a new download button in the details page, and a new menu option will show which TV and films are offered for streaming.

“Orange Is the New Black,” “Narcos,” “House of Cards,”, and “Stranger Things,” are amongst a few titles that will be available for Netflix users starting Wednesday. Also, shows like “Breaking Bad,” “Supernatural,” and the movie “Kung Fu Panda 3” are going to be part of the offline streaming option.

In a blog post announcement of the new Netflix feature, Eddy Wu, director of production innovation for the company, stated, “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.” What members worldwide have been asking for is finally here.
