When Netflix began offering support for offline viewing for devices late last year, it only did so for handsets that are powered by the Android and iOS mobile operating systems. But this year, the company is now introducing the same feature to the Windows 10 platform, as first reported by MSPoweruser. But wait, there is a catch -- it can only be used on Windows 10 personal computers and tablet devices.
More than a year ago, Netflix had decided to include an in-app subscription feature in its app for iOS powered mobile devices, and that move might have contributed immensely in its growing popularity ever since. Indeed during the last month, the app had reached the Top Grossing chart for the first time, landing at number nine. Recently, Netflix’s app adds another reason to celebrate, for it has become the top grossing app for iPhone devices in all of the United States.
Finally. Video streaming giant Netflix has, at long last, decided to let people download and watch its content offline. In other words, users can now enjoy watching Orange is the New Black or other favorite TV shows and movies on their smartphones and tablet devices even without an existing web connection. The company is making this option available to all customers who have already received the latest Netflix update on their compatible smartphone or table. For those not in the know, that would mean any handset that runs on either Android 4.4.2 or newer version, or iOS 8.0 or newer.
More and more people are terminating their cable television subscriptions nowadays in favor of alternative service providers who deliver content via the Internet. The growing popularity of video content streaming services like Netflix and Amazon is certainly proof of that.
Sony Pictures has recently announced that the controversial movie The Interview will be available online through Google Play, YouTube Movies, Xbox Video, and via a dedicated web page (SeeTheInterview.com). The film will cost viewers $5.99 to rent, and $14.99 to own (HD copy).
Notably absent from the list is iTunes, which is a bummer especially for owners of iPhones, iPads, and other iOS devices everywhere. Despite involvement from the White House (Sony Pictures had reportedly asked the White House for help), Apple continues to refuse to stream the movie. Aside from Apple, others like Amazon and Sony's own PlayStation Network have also declined to carry the film.
