Netflix subscribers can now stream without the hindrance that a poor internet connection — and its mocking spinning red wheel — brings.
The streaming entertainment giant said Wednesday it’s rolling out a new feature allowing customers to download content, but then watch select films and series offline, meaning not limited to a cellular or internet connection for viewing.
Increasingly, consumers want the freedom to watch content on the go where cellular data and wireless internet connections can be spotty, at best. On the most recent version of the Netflix app, for both Android and iOS devices, subscribers worldwide can download certain series and films with no added cost. The download feature is available across all of Netflix’s plans starting Wednesday.
“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,” wrote Eddy Wu, Netflix’s product innovation director, in a blog post.
It’s not clear exactly which series and films are presently available, but Wu made sure to point out a few of Netflix’s originals that are, counting “Orange is The New Black,” “Narcos” and “The Crown.” More are on the way, he added. (Source: MarketWatch)
