If This Netflix Rumor Is True, Your Morning Commute Will Never Be The Same

Very soon you might be able to download movies and TV from Netflix and watch them offline.

When I first moved into my new apartment, I didn't have internet and had to steal from some neighbor, but could only get internet for a few minutes at a time. I watched entire movies at two-minute intervals. This change would save future me's from the same fate.

The rumors come from Panther COO Dan Taitz telling Lightreading.com,

We know from our sources within the industry that Netflix is going to launch this product. My expectation is that by the end of the year Netflix will be launching download-to-go as an option for their customers.

But Frost & Sullivan principle analyst Dan Rayburn explained it's basically an open secret this is going to happen.

So, no, this isn't a 100 percent sure thing yet, but if the rumors are true, you'll be able to watch detectives make jokes about gruesome dead bodies wherever and whenever you want — without using up all your data to see a pixelated image of Ice-T pretending to not be Ice-T.

Several other companies, like Amazon, already offer this convenient feature to its users.

In 2015, however, Netflix COO Neil Hunt explained why the site hadn't offered this feature yet, saying he thought it would make the site too complicated.

Let me just put my two cents in, Neil. It is not too complicated for me. Let me have it. Give it to me. Now.
