Netflix might offer offline viewing later this year

Rumors are swirling that Netflix is preparing an offline video option that would allow subscribers to download videos that could be watched later when they lack an internet connection. This is expected to happen by year’s end. […] This is still just a rumor, but it’s clear there is demand for the feature. With the increased prevalence of capped mobile data plans, people have plenty of reason to want offline videos. Frequent air travelers would be all over this as well. WiFi is more common on airplanes now, but it’s rarely fast enough for a proper video stream. – Ryan Whitwam,
