Smart, smart move. Well done, Netflix!!

Netflix makes movies, TV shows available offline

Netflix subscribers can now download shows and movies to watch during a flight, when travelling by car or at any other time their access to the internet is limited.

The download option was announced Wednesday, and a number of shows and movies were made instantly available, including Breaking Bad, Narcos and Spotlight.

Netflix Inc., based in Los Gatos, Calif., says more downloadable content is coming at no additional charge for users.

There has been a push by subscribers to get access to Netflix shows offline.

Amazon.com Inc., which runs a rival video streaming service, has allowed users to download select shows and movies for about a year.
