CNET Update: Download Netflix shows to watch offline3:00 /
No Internet needed to binge your favorite Netflix shows. Meanwhile, there's news to share about this CNET show.
Netflix binge watchers, your biggest wish is finally coming true. You can now watch shows offline. Netflix's mobile app added an option for users to download films and TV shows in advance to be able to watch it later without an internet connection. That means if you're about to go on a trip or travel by plane, you can just predownload shows to watch anytime without worrying about data. But there's a catch. Not every show and movie can be viewed offline, but Netflix says many are included, such as its original series Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards. But just because it's a Netflix original doesn't mean it will work. The film The Little Prince can't be downloaded, at least not yet. And neither can some licensed shows and movies. Such as the BBC Sherlock. To tell if a show can be download in advance first, you have to update the app, it's available for iOs and Android. And then, look for an arrow symbol next to a title, that indicates it can be downloaded. There's also a new category on the Netflix app menu, called available for download, which lists all shows that can be viewed offline. And speaking of shows, I have some big news about this show. After five years this will be the final episode of CNET Update. But dear fans, don't be distraught. You'll still find me everyday on CNET dishing out tech news.
