The news had already been in the air for some time: #Netflix, the streaming service that is the most popular and that is conquering an increasingly large share of users in Italy, has decided to make its contents available also #offline (not all and not immediately, but it is already a big step forward).
Until now, Netflix subscribers who wanted to watch a movie, documentary or TV series in streaming had to be connected to the network; from now on this will no longer be necessary. You can also watch content on the train or on the metro: just download the content that interests us in advance on our mobile device and then we will find it there, ready to wait for us too. offline.
“A lot of movies and series are already available for download and more will be soon, so there is a wide choice of titles to watch offline. For example, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available for download today, ”said Eddy Wu, director of product innovation. The new feature, of course, works for both iOS and Android. To start downloading, you need to update the Netflix app to the latest version, click the "download" button on the product detail page and watch it when you are most comfortable.
Obviously, all downloaded content is usable as long as the Netflix subscription is active. So does Spotify, which allows paid users to download songs for offline listening. The streaming era has begun: who will watch TV anymore?
