netflix download

Netflix has added a new feature that lets you download shows to your device. That means you can watch the show or film wherever you are, without relying on an internet connection to stream it.

Viewers have been requesting the feature for a long time. And now it's finally arrived.

In order to download a particular show or film, just look for the download button on its details page – the button bears a down arrow above a horizontal line.

Some of Netflix's biggest shows are available to download right now. These include 'Orange is the New Black', 'Narcos' and 'The Crown'.

The feature is included in all Netflix plans, and is available for Android and iOS phones and tablets. To enable it, make sure you've updated your Netflix app to the most recent version.

Netflix said the feature was a response to customer demand.

"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," Eddy Wu, Netflix's director of product innovation, wrote in a blog post.

"Many of your favourite streaming series and movies are already available to download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline."

Arch rival Amazon Prime Video has had the feature for some time now, so Netflix customers will welcome this announcement.
