Netflix allows members to download content
MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix has announced that its members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost.
Users can click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series. They can then watch it later without an internet connection.
The app also has a separate “Available for Download” page. Users can access the video content here.
Netflix director of product innovation Eddy Wu said, “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. Just click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series and you can watch it later without an internet connection.
“Many of your favourite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline. For example, ‘Orange is The New Black’, ‘Narcos’ and ‘The Crown’ are available for download today.”
The new feature is included in all plans and available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS. To start downloading, users will have to update their Netflix app to the most recent version.
