Netflix-2016(NEW YORK) — 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.”
The company confirmed the news in a video tweet, the caption of which read, “Airplane mode. Road trip mode. Stuck-in-the-subway-for-20-minutes mode. Your favorite stories are now available for download any time.”
Not every Netflix show is yet available for download, but more will be added, the streaming service promises.
