Netflix fans, listen up: a download feature may be coming to a screen near your.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has alluded to the possibility of the feature, which would make a Wi-Fi connection optional next time you need to binge watch your favorite show.
In an interview with CNBC, Sarandos said: “Now as we've launched in more territories … They all have different levels of broadband speeds and Wi-Fi access. So in those countries they have adapted their behaviors to be much more of a downloading culture.”
“In those emerging territories it starts to become a little more interesting,” he continued. “We still think for the developed world our thesis has been true but I think as we get into more and more (of the) undeveloped world and developing countries that we want to find alternatives for people to use Netflix easily.”
When asked specifically about when Netflix users could expect an update like this, there was no timeline, unfortunately. In Sarandos' words, Netflix is “looking at it now, so we'll see when.”
Our fingers are crossed, though. Just think of how much more enjoyable your travels could be with a few of your favorite Netflix originals ready to go.
