The feature comes free of cost with all Netflix memberships.
Up until now, you needed a place with a reliable internet connection to access the streaming service. But Netflix wants to make its product more nimble to suit the lives of those on-the-go.
The company previously argued the feature was unnecessary, calling it a “short term fix for a bigger problem.” That problem, of course, being wireless internet availability.
But its competitor Amazon Prime embraced offline downloads for iOS and Android users more than a year ago.
According to Netflix’s Help Center page, “you’ll want to delete” downloaded titles before attempting to download a new content.
It is unclear as of now if there’s a cap on how many shows or films people can download at once.
Netflix did not immediately respond to CNNMoney’s request for comment
