On Wednesday, Netflix made the download feature available for select movies and TV shows, which allows users to watch shows offline, in absence of Wi-Fi or mobile internet.
The feature was added by the company due to high demand by their subscribers and also because Google Prime, their competitors, had already launched this feature for select videos in its gallery.
This feature is available on both Android and iOS devices.
The download feature is not only available for users to download Netflix original shows but also several other TV shows and movies, but much like Amazon Prime they haven’t made their entire gallery available.
We’ve compiled a list of shows that are totally worth your time and now you’ve the option to download and watch them later on your handheld devices while travelling, getting bored waiting for someone or at your grandparents where there is no Wi-Fi.
Walter White, a Chemistry teacher goes haywire after realising that his honest life is no good to him while he struggles to pay for his cancer treatment and supporting his family. He sets out on a different path altogether, one which involves dealing with drugs and becoming a revered figure in the criminal world.
If you missed out on the summer’s hype of Stranger Things, wait no more and get yourself updated. This 8-episode long first season of the series is as good as a thriller gets. What’s even more exciting? The producers of the show are releasing the next season with 9 episodes, tentatively in July 2017.
Love drives you insane, now doesn’t it? The series follows the life of a working woman who leaves her job of choice in New York and goes looking for love in California. The series isn’t half as bad as it is underrated and unappreciated.
Parks and Recreations
Parks and Recreations is a quirky story about government officials of working for the Department of Parks and Recreation and gives a hilarious take on their antics while trying to make their city a better place. It’s a seven-season long series, which will probably last you a few weeks of travelling.
A gift from Netflix on the series’ 50th anniversary, you get to watch all the series of the Star Trek show — The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise. There’s nothing really that I can tell you about this show, except that it’s awesome and there are a lot of episodes that demand your attention. Get on Netflix and download your way to hours and hours of entertainment.
The IT Crowd
This British series which ran for five seasons follows the lives of tech-support employs in a big MNC and gives a rather hilarious and at times satirical take on how ‘geeks’ fit into the corporate culture.
This one is a Netflix original totally worth watching. The show, still in its first season, is based on the British monarchy and how their public responsibility hampers personal lives and also their image in public.
