There’s a new Netflix update in town for smartphone and tablet apps that allows you to view some of its content offline.
This is exciting news for those of you travelling around, wanting to kill some time while on buses, at the airport, or at any point where you’re unable to connect to the internet and stream films and tv shows.
It’s been a long time coming, but Netflix are finally here with the offline playback feature which was announced in a jazzy tweet:

For the moment, you’ll only be able to preload shows such as Stranger Things, Narcos, Orange is the New Black, with movies and other content becoming available in the near future.
The new version of the app is available now for many smart devices including Amazon Fire TV.
