Late last year Netflix made a lot of people happy when it added an offline playback back in November. This allowed you to watch your favorite shows whether commuting to work on the subway or flying to another country. Since its launch the downloading of Netflix shows and movies has been limited to mobile devices, but now you can download movies and shows onto your PC as well.
Now you wont be able to do this at Netflix.com. You need to download Netflix app from the Windows Store to use this feature. The good news is the app often works better so this will be as good a reason as any to download the more power-efficient app.
Keep in mind downloading only works with some shows. Not every show due to licensing terms with the rights owners, but it will at least have you covered for any Netflix Originals, and a growing list of movies and TV shows.
This is a huge change for Netflix as in the past Netflix pushed the idea of more wireless internet. Well Netflix is still pushing wireless internet they seem to also now want to support downloading.
