Netflix has finally granted what many subscribers have been requesting for years: the option to download shows for offline viewing. The company is now allowing members worldwide to download select TV shows and films for viewing on Android and Apple devices while disconnected from the Internet.

The latest versions of Netflix's mobile apps will include a download button on the details page for a TV series or film, but not all titles are available to watch offline. There's also a new menu that shows which titles are available to download.

Original shows include Narcos, House of Cards, Strange Things, Master of None, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Orange is the New Black, and The Crown will be available to download starting Wednesday. Other titles available for download are animated films Minions and Home, and TV shows The Office, The Flash, The 100, and Supernatural. The company said that it plans to add more titles for offline viewing in the future.


The new download feature is available in all Netflix plans and available for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Users will need iOS 8.0 or later or Android 4.4.2 or later to download titles in the Netflix app.
