Netflix have finally allowed users to playback TV shows and movies while being offline.
This means you will be able to download Netflix content and watch it while you’re away from a data connection.
Until now, the streaming service required users to have a reliable Internet connection, so it was impossible to watch content on the tube, airplanes or other places where connection may be limited.
However with their latest update, you’ll be able to stream your favourite TV shows on the go.

The streaming company has added a ‘download’ button for certain films and TV shows, with plans to expand to more titles in the future.
Netflix currently appears to have started with its original content such as Orange Is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown.
The feature is currently available on Android and iOS smartphones and tablet devices, as long as they’re running iOS 8.0 or Android 4.4.2 or later.
