Netflix changes the game, now offering downloads for offline viewing

- Netflix announced that it will be letting users download shows and movies so that they can be watched offline.

Here's what the company said in their game changing tweet:

"Airplane mode. Road trip mode. Stuck-in-the-subway-for-20-minutes mode. Your favorite stories are now available for download any time."



However, not all videos will work with the "offline mode." Don't let that you stop you from binge watching! There are tons of shows and movies available for download, including favorites like "Narcos" and "Orange Is The New Black." 

The company has said that many more titles are coming. 
The feature is set to begin immediately, via an app update on your iOS or Android device. Once updated, you should see a download button next to videos that can be viewed offline.
People on social media couldn't be happier. We have to admit, it is pretty awesome!
