WATCH Netflix Allows Viewers to Download Content for Offline Use

Ever want to watch a Netflix show or movie, but you're stuck on a plane or train with no WiFi?

Well, that's no longer a problem. Today, the streaming service announced that "members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost."

Films and shows can be downloaded to a tablet, phone or computer, just like Apple's iTunes service.

"We’ve often heard [members] also want to continue their 'Stranger Things' binge while on airplanes and other places where Internet is expensive or limited," the official release said. "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."

Some shows are available now but more will be added.

"The new feature is included in all plans and available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS," Eddy Wu, director of product innovation at Netflix, added.
