You can now binge watch your favorite show, anywhere.
Everyone’s favorite streaming service Netflix is likely to offer offline viewing before the end of 2016. According to an Industry insider, Panthera’s COO Dan Taitz and analysts that circle this market is that Netflix is working on introducing a new download feature.
“My expectation is that by the end of the year Netflix will be launching download-to-go as an option for their customers.” – Dan Taitz, Chief Operating Officer
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, who did say earlier this year the company are open to the idea of a download feature. However, the company has been somewhat hush-hush about the entire topic. A spokesperson for the company has responded simply with;“nothing to add at this time”.
If you were wondering how this feature would work—simple—users would have to download a specific video while connected to Wi-Fi or data. If ever updated, they’ll likely include a feature where it’ll indicate if you’ll like to download this specific film or show. Other streaming services like; Comcast and Amazon do offer similar features, yet only allowing a small portion of their content for download.
We’re still unsure how Netflix would introduce this feature. Will they allow for a number of shows and films to be granted the access of download? Would it be limited as to how much one can download, plus free? Will it grant access to only Netflix shows and films?—that’s likely. Whichever may be the case, the company thrives on keeping a customer satisfaction with its service.
Just last month at this year’s PlayStation Meeting, Sony announce the PS4 Pro will allow for a 4K streaming with Netflix service. Xbox One S also grants this feature with its console 4K capability, as I’m sure the Scorpio would as well.
Well, the year is almost out, and an announcement update could be closer than we think. For now, we simply wait.
