The weary travelers asked, and the video-streaming Gods delivered. Netflix announced this morning that you can download shows to save for a later playback. This means practically endless Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and The Crown episodes for those long cross-country or transatlantic flights.
Netflix has chosen a selection of shows that are available in “Offline Mode,” namely Netflix originals. Other shows include Breaking Bad and Mad Men, and movies like Kung Fu Panda 3 to Boyhood.
Download the latest version of the Netflix app on Android or iOS (out today), and a new “download” button will appear next to the play toggle. While on Wifi, simply download your chosen episodes or films and you’ll be able to watch when you’re in the air… or maybe when your connection stinks at home.
Now, you needn’t worry about getting bored on the flight.. just the jet lag when you get there.
