Netflix is one of the most widely used services when it comes to media consumption. Watching TV shows, movies and a handful of other content right on your smartphone, tablet or a desktop has never been easy. What we have come across today is a highly demanded feature that all of us have been waiting for Netlfix to adopt – Offline Mode. Let’s see some more details Netflix offline mode and see when it will arrive.

Netflix Offline Mode To Arrive Before The End Of This Year

One of the best aspects about streaming services or Netflix is that you take your content with you wherever you go. However, if you’re going somewhere without a an internet connection, all of your content is halted. So either you have to find a stable Wi-Fi connection, or allow your data to drain. This is about to change with the Netflix offline mode.

According to sources familiar with Netflix, offline viewing might be coming to desktops and mobile applications. The rough estimate suggests that the Netflix offline mode will be available before the end of this year. So it’s one thing to wait for as we have all wanted to view our favorite series and movies on the go, requiring no internet connection.

COO of a mobile video firm, Penthera, Dan Taitz told Light Reading that the company is actively working on the feature and that it will launch soon. Previously, Reed Hastings, the company’s CEO said that the offline mode was ”never going to happen”. It’s good to see that the company is reconsidering what it previously thought wasn’t a good idea.

At this point, we’re unsure what shows will feature offline viewing. A lot of people are anticipating that the option will be available on Netflix Originals alone, which include’s its new Marvel shows. As great as it sounds, we hope the service arrives on time that is before the end of this year. It will definitely be a neat addition to the streaming service.
