Bad Wi-Fi Signal? No Wi-Fi during your flight? Not to worry. Netflix has finally made it possible for you to download your favorite movies and series to your device so you can watch them offline! Netflix will start with giving this option to its own original creations such as House of Cards, Stranger Things, The Crown, Orange Is The New Black etc. More shows and movies are sure to be added later on.
Go and update to the latest version on your IOS or Android to get the functionality to download. A button will appear next to the play button for shows that have this option. You can now watch it later offline when you don't have an internet connection. There are two qualities to choose from, Standard and Higher ; “Standard quality is a slightly lower video resolution that requires less storage space and takes less time to download. Higher quality is a higher video resolution that requires more storage space and takes more time to download.”
The download option was already available with Vudu and Amazon Video so Netflix had to join in to make sure their users would still be satisfied. The download functionality is available for all streaming services so you will not have to upgrade to a more expensive plan. Good news all around!
