Netflix Finally Brings Offline Support to Windows 10

Several months after Netflix provided offline support on Android and iOS, the service has finally brought this functionality to Windows 10 too.

“While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we’ve often heard they also want to continue their Stranger Things binge while on airplanes and other places where Internet is expensive or limited,” Netflix director Eddy Wu wrote, back when Stranger Things was still a thing. “Just click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series and you can watch it later without an internet connection.”

The company hasn’t announced the availability of offline viewing on Windows 10, but it just happened: If you download or update the Netflix app now, you’ll see the update.

It works as it does on more popular mobile platforms: Supported TV shows and movies will provide a handy Download link.

Netflix also provides a handy Available for Download playlist so you can easily find downloadable content.
