Netflix announces that it is finally allowing viewers to download programming on mobile devices to be able to watch later in the offline mode. 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,” said Eddy Wu, director of product innovation for Netflix.
The video streaming platform took a long time to come up with this feature, but it ultimately had to follow the competitor Amazon, which has already allowed downloading long back. Hulu also stated in an event that they’re working on it and may soon come up with the feature. For Netflix, the feature is available on Android and iOS devices and users will have to download the new app in order to upgrade.
