By on December 25, 2016


Netflix today updated its Android and iOS apps with a major new feature.

Netflix now lets you download shows and movies for offline viewing. The feature is now available as part of an update to the Netflix apps for Android and iOS, and it’s supported on both phones and tablets.

Offline viewing isn’t available for every single show and movie on Netflix, but there are a lot of options to choose from. That includes TV shows like Orange is the New Black, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Office, and 30 Rock, as well as movies like The Fast and The Furious, Jaws, No Country for Old Men, Hot Fuzz, and Kung Fu Panda 3.


The addition of offline viewing is a huge deal for Netflix. With it, Netflix users can not only enjoy shows where they might not have an internet connection, but it also helps those folks with limited data plans to watch Netflix on the go after downloading shows over Wi-Fi.

To get offline viewing, go and update your Netflix app now.
