Netflix has officially unveiled the feature we’ve all been waiting for: offline downloads.

You will now be able to open the iOS or Android app and download shows like Breaking Bad, Stranger Things, Narcos and more.

All you need to do is update your app to the latest version and it will automatically direct you to a section of the app where you can see all the films and TV shows that are available to download.

The company has been teasing that it would finally let consumers download shows and movies to watch offline but it was widely expected to be limited to parts of the world where internet speeds were much slower than the global average.

In an interview with CNBC, chief content officer Ted Sarandos said earlier this year that it was considering developing an offline mode, but there would be a catch.

Sarandos said: “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.”

Well it looks like there is no catch, simply download the latest version of Netflix on your iPhone, iPad or Android device and start downloading now.
