Going Offline: Netflix Makes Movies Available to Download Without Streaming

Depending on where you are in the world, having a quality and reliable internet service from a provider can be a precarious thing for many people. Fortunately for those that have a subscription to Netflix, those same folks now have the option to download a wide collection of movies and television programs in the event that they drop out and are forced offline.

The company made a public announcement this week to state that members worldwide have the option, should they so wish, to download select movies and TV shows. Releasing a seemingly endless list that would take some time to watch as a collection, they explained that the downloads will be available for iOS and Android smartphone and tablet devices.

Mixture of New Flicks and Old Classics Make The Cut

No Country for Old Men

Including some bucket list items that have to be seen and some fresh additions to their enormous library of goodies, Netflix put forward the content that can be downloaded from those devices. With the likes of No Country For Old Men and Pulp Fiction being among the many, there is no shortage of choice for subscribers out there.

Will Amazon Step Up To Challenge The Giant?

Amazon Logo Service

As Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos keeps himself occupied with a cameo in Star Trek Beyond, a tweet from former Top Gear star Jeremy Clarkson has people speculating as to the strategy of the company via it's own streaming service. With the Brit stating that they will be going global, he might have let the cat out of the bag as others look to cash in on the trend.

Only being made available to a handful of countries like the U.S., U.K., Japan, Germany and Austria, there is a greater market crying out to see video content that bypasses the cinema and network television arenas. Given the step by Netflix to develop some flexibility for their customers, they seem to be anticipating some added competition in the very near future.
