Netflix has answered all our prayers, announcing that they have started allowing users to download movies and television shows to watch offline.
That’s right, we can finally binge-watch on the go without wasting our mobile data. Netflix and chill has never been easier or more inexpensive.
Netflix’s Director of Product Innovation Eddy Wu said the company has made the decision, as they have heard many consumers, “want to continue their Stranger Things binge while on airplanes and other places where internet is expensive or limited,” he said.
The new feature is available to all Netflix users around the world.

But there’s a catch, the update is only available on Android and iOS mobile devices. Also not every TV show and movie available on Netflix is downloadable at this stage.
However, after taking a quick look through the ‘Available for Download’ category, popular TV shows such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Narcos and Orange Is The New Black are available to download, as well as some movies including The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, 8 Mile and Wedding Crashers.
If you haven’t updated your Netflix app yet, what are you waiting for you bloody drongo?!
