Netflix is a multinational entertainment company which was founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on 29th August, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California.It provides stream-able and on-demand content online, and also delivers DVDs by mail.

So, the idea of being able to stream anything you want seems great, but anyone who has used Netflix knows the importance of a good internet connection; one needs reliable internet or Wi-Fi to enjoy Netflix in all its glory. And while this may not be a problem for people in America or other developed countries where Wi-Fi is available almost everywhere you go, undeveloped or developing countries, which are Netflix’s next targets, still face issues like slow speeds. With that in mind, Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer of Netflix, recently told CNBC that the company is working on a feature which will allow people to watch the content on Netflix offline.
He talked about how expanding to different countries, with their total territories now standing at 190, has meant different viewing cultures, one of which is the “downloading culture”. The basic principle behind the offline feature would be the ability to download the content instead of streaming it, making it possible to view the content on Netflix offline. The most likely method would be a “Download” button alongside videos, which would allow direct downloads. However, since the feature would be aimed at other markets, America is unlikely to be the first country to get it.
