Netflix now lets you watch your favorite shows offline

By  | 

Your next long-haul flight just got more interesting as Netflix will now allow users to watch shows offline.

Netflix announced on Wednesday that members now have the option to download movies and shows to watch offline later. This means you can finally watch the new season of 'Stranger Things' and 'Bloodline' while on a flight or anywhere away from a wi-fi or cellular signal.

The feature is free with all Netflix memberships. Members will want to make sure they have the most recent Netflix app on their devices to access the new 'download' button.

Netflix originals like 'Orange is the New Black,' 'Narcos,' and 'The Crown 'are already available for download, but shows like 'Gilmore Girls,' 'New Girl,' and 'Friends' can't be downloaded for now.

Netflix competitor Amazon Prime embraced offline downloads more than a year ago.
