Netflix adds offline playback for phones and tablets

11.30.2016

There's been some talk lately of Netflix adding an "offline playback" feature to its streaming service and....well, would you look at that! It's already here! There's now an update for iOS and Android devices that will allow you download a number of films and shows that are, surprisingly, not limited to Neflix original content. Check out the ad for the service below!

While I haven't had a chance to check out the download service for myself, the good folks over at engadget have and reported that this feature is available for every plan and that movies and shows outside of Netflix original content, such as DAZED AND CONFUSED, BOYHOOD and 30 Rock, are available. There's even an offline content tab so you can quickly look through what's available to download to your phone or tablet. The one caveat seems to be that the quality is not quite up there with its streaming counterpart, but I'm sure convenience will win out in the end. For those of you always on the move, this looks like a cool way to keep your Netflix experience going!

Neat

I rarely use Netflix. Only when new seasons of shows I follow come out and then I binge watch said show(s) over the length of a couple days and then Netflix goes unused for several months. But this is a nice option for those who travel with data caps and no wifi available.

Very cool. I have a long daily commute with a WiFi-only iPad (and no Wifi on the train) so this will be nice. So far, the selection is puzzling. Not all Netflix original content is available for download (Stranger Things, Black Mirror are; Marvel shows, movie like "Hush" and "I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House" aren't). I wonder if it will eventually be rolled out to all Netflix original content.
