A new, free feature allows you to watch video while traveling, or anywhere you don't have an internet connection.

Streaming video over an internet connection is no longer the only way to enjoy a Netflix subscription.

Netflix announced Wednesday that subscribers can now download movies and TV shows to their own devices. That means you can watch video while traveling, for example, or anywhere you don’t have an internet connection.

Netflix’s director of product innovation, Eddy Wu, explains in a company blog post:

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.

The new download feature doesn’t cost extra. Instead, it’s included in all Netflix plans and is available for phones and tablets through Netflix’s apps for Android and Apple iOS devices.

Wu writes that “many” TV series and movies are already available for download, with “more” forthcoming.

To download video from Netflix, click on the download button that appears on the details page for a TV series or movie. Note that you’ll first need to make sure you have the latest version of the Netflix app, though.

Additionally, do your downloading over a Wi-Fi connection if you’re concerned about the amount of data you use on your phone or tablet. Netflix’s Help Center notes that downloading and streaming consume similar amounts of data.

Netflix plans currently range in price from $7.99 to $11.99 per month. If that’s not worth it to you, you might want to check out “17 Places You Can (Legally) Download or Stream Free Movies and TV.”
