Finally, Netflix has confirmed that downloads are now available for members worldwide in addition to the ability to stream series and films. In order to do so, the Netflix app must be updated to the most recent version for phones and tablets on Android and iOS.
The download ability allows for offline playback and so members can continue to binge watch in places where internet is expensive or limited. All they have to do click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series and the series can be watched later without an internet connection.
Quite a few series and movies are already available for download, with more expected to have that capacity shortly. Netflix originals like Orange Is the New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available to download now.
