Netflix just released a new service that lets users watch shows and movies offline.
Netflix, the American online entertainment service with millions of subscribers world wide, just rolled out a brand new feature for subscribers with Android and Apple devices.
Their newest update for their app allows users to download their favorite shows, movies and documentaries onto their devices to watch offline at any time they wish.
Once users download the new up, or update their existing one, they will find that a new “download” tab is now available in the details page of a movie or show. All the user has to do is press download and the video will start transferring to their device.
Although not all Netflix content is available for download and offline viewing just yet, users can start downloading Netflix Originals like Orange Is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown right away.
