You Can Finally Download Movies & TV Shows From Netflix

Netflix has finally done it: the company now allows you to download your favorite movies and TV shows to watch offline. Anytime, anywhere. Everyone’s favorite addiction-enabler made the annoucement via Twitter Wednesday morning.

To download something to watch (for no extra cost!) on your Android and iOS phones and tablets, simply go to the details page on a movie or show and click the download button. It’s that simple. Downloads are available for all plans, as long as you have the most recent Netflix app update. 

To easily find content that is downloadable, Netflix has added an “Available for Download” section. Highlights include One Tree Hill, Parks and Recreation and Orange Is The New Black. Sadly, it does not yet include Gilmore Girls or its revival. 

Our only question is: Why didn’t Netflix do this in time for us to download Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life??

Sarah Nelson is senior at the University of Iowa pursuing a Journalism major, English minor, and Fundraising and Philanthropy Communication Certificate. When she's not binge-watching One Tree Hill or Jane the Virgin on Netflix (again), she's is probably rereading the Harry Potter series or writing for her blog, SarahNdipity. With an addiction to books and coffee, Sarah hopes to take the world by storm as a book editor. Or social media marketer. Or blogger. (She hasn't quite made up her mind yet, but that's okay because who says you have to be just one thing?)
