The ability to take Netflix with you wherever you go without taxing your data plan was once but just a dream. Today it becomes a reality.
The streaming service announced that subscribers worldwide can now download content.

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. 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.
Many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline. For example, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available for download today.
The new feature is included in all plans and available for phones and tablets on Android and iOS.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos confirmed earlier this month that the company was exploring downloadable content options for its 86 million worldwide members. Mission accomplished.
So what will you be downloading to take on the go?
