While Netflix is quickly becoming my go-to place to watch the telly, there has always been one flaw. You have to be connected to the Internet in order to actually watch the shows. If you were travelling or, god forbid, your Internet cut out randomly, you’d be stuck with nothing to watch. That is until now.

Netflix has today announced that every subscriber, worldwide, can now download content for offline playback absolutely free. Yep, your subscription price remains the same, but now you can watch stuff offline. Simply tap the download button on the details page of a film or TV show, and watch it without Internet.

It seems that this feature is limited to a handful of series’ and movies at the moment with more to come. Of course it seems Netflix Originals are taking pride of place at the moment, though soon enough you’ll also be able to download non-Netflix shows and movies too.

All you have to do is make sure your Netflix app is updated and off you go!
