Netflix announced Wednesday that they would finally be offering downloads, this is great news considering we are in the middle of the holiday/travel season. Between airplane mode and poor tower reception offline content is heaven sent. But what’s the catch? There’s gotta be a catch, right? Well, there is. Kinda. The download option isn’t available for all movies and TV shows just yet, though Netflix confirmed Wednesday that original series like Orange Is the New Black and Narcos were made immediately available for phone and tablet users. Additional titles are thankfully “on the way,” so don’t sweat it.
