Netflix finally lets you download shows to watch offline, thank god

Have you ever wanted to watch your favorite Netflix shows on the go, but don’t want to pay for Wi-Fi or use your precious data? If so, your continued prayers to the binge watching gods have been answered. Now, Netflix finally lets you download shows to watch offline so you can continue your binging saga and ignore everyone in public.

Netflix Director of Product Innovation Eddy Wu made the announcement on the streaming service’s website and said the service will be offered at no extra cost. “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,” he said.

Users will be able to click a download button on a movie or TV series’ details page and save the show to watch later. Netflix’s new feature is available for all phones and tablets that use both iOS and Android. The latest update for the app became available shortly after the announcement and some movies and TV shows are already available to download. The downloaded titles will give a set amount of time that the shows are able to be viewed on the device. And, there are already plans to open up download access for more movies and shows.

I didn’t think it was possible, but this update has managed to make Netflix even better. Think about how road trips, public transportation rides, cross-country flights, and really any time you’re away from home and internet access will be easier to deal with when you have Orange is the New Black or Stranger Things to occupy your time. You can also watch more Netflix at work – a win for every bored employee in the world. You’ll never have to sit bored out of your mind or interact with strangers in public ever again if you don’t want to.

The new Netflix feature may also work to your advantage if you are traveling to another country. You may not be able to watch downloaded shows if the country you’re traveling to does not have the show available, but you may be able to gain access to shows that aren’t available in the U.S. and download them to watch during your travels. So, you can be a Netflix wizard all over the world.

Thanks to the Netflix powers for making dreams come true.
