Netflix now allows you to watch offline


(CNN) - Netflix will now allow users to watch shows offline.

Netflix announced Wednesday members will have the option to download movies and shows to watch offline later. This means you can watch seasons of shows or a movie while on a flight or stuck on the subway, without a wi-fi or cell signal.

The feature is free with all Netflix memberships. 

Netflix says members will want to make sure they have the most recent app on their devices to access the new 'download' button. 

Netflix originals like 'Orange is the New Black,' 'Narcos,' and 'The Crown' are already available for download but shows like 'Gilmore Girls,' 'New Girl,' and 'Friends' can't be downloaded for now. 

Netflix competitor Amazon Prime embraced offline downloads more than a year ago.
