Offline mode! Those are two words Netflix users have been dying to hear for so long. Many just wished they could get to watch their favorite Netflix shows whenever they want to, and the latest addition to Netflix’s offerings shows that the company has finally conceded to users’ requests.
The latest update to Netflix’s iOS and Android apps come with this feature. The Netflix app now has a long list of shows that are available for download, so you just have to scroll through the categories, see shows you have watched and download any that’s interesting.
Not all the shows are available for download, which may be giving us hints on why there have been delays in releasing the offline mode on Netflix. The company most likely will have to secure new sets of rights from the owners of the contents, and that means you may not be seeing some of the shows you will have loved to see in the ‘Available for Download’ section of the app. According to a Netflix spokeswoman, “we are working with lots of partners globally to get downloading rights for the bulk of the content on our service, this is an ongoing effort as we know consumers want this capability and we are working to provide it.”
