Netflix has plans to make chilling with your bae with its next move especially for people who are conscious about data usage.

The streaming service will soon make it possible for you to watch movies and TV series offline.

"Now as we’ve launched in more territories… They all have different levels of broadband speeds and Wi-Fi access. So in those countries they have adapted their behaviours to be much more of a downloading culture […] We want to find alternatives for people to use Netflix easily" said Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos during an interview with CNBC on Wednesday, November 2, 2016.
