Anyone obsessed with Orange Is The New Black and cursed with a shitty internet connection understands the struggle that is online streaming. Apart from glitching in the middle of hella tense scenes, the existing Netflix system means your binge-seshs are restricted to your sofa or anywhere where a decent wifi (which is basically nowhere).
At last, it seems the big bosses at Netflix have finally heard our pleas with Ted Sarandos, the Chief Content Officer, confirming they’re working on an offline option as we speak.
Sarandos told CNBC, “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,” he said.
In short, the main reason for offline downloading is that countries with slower broadband speeds and lower wi-fi access will still be able to enjoy the gift that is Netflix.
Help out peeps with slow AF internet connections, meaning we’re probs good contenders, right?
While Sarandos didn’t give us a date to mark in our calendars, he did say they’re “looking at it now, so we’ll see when.”
So sit tight peeps and get ready for the future of Netflix n' Chill to come atcha.
