Netflix Finally Released Its Offline Mode — Here’s How To Use It

The Netflix binge just got real.

Some absolute genius over at HQ has gifted us the pleasure of viewing our favorite shows wherever, whenever.

That’s right. You can now download episodes and movies to watch while offline.

And you thought Netflix and chill was dead. Wrong. It’s just been reignited. Think about the endless possibilities:

N&C on a park bench? Sure. N&C in the back of a car? 100 percent. You can even take it to the mile-high club now. What a time to be alive.

So how does it work?

Very easily. All you have to do is find the download button next to an episode of your choice and, you know, download…

The awesome news was dropped by the streaming company in a blog post. Eddy Wu, director of product innovation, said,

Netflix members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost.

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.

I can’t seem to find the download icon on my Netflix account for now (probably need to update it), but the company said many shows are available to view offline as of today.

These include “Orange Is the New Black,” “Narcos” and “The Crown.”

The new feature will be rolled out to all plans and is available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS.

WOOP. Happy early Christmas present to me, from Netflix. You’re too good to us, guys, really.

Between this and Spotify, you can revel in the fact you probably won’t ever have to speak to people again.
