You will soon be able to watch movies offline with bae

Netflix plans for offline streaming for areas with limited access to Internet or poor Internet like Nigeria.

Netflix and Chill

"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.

This new service is for territories that have slow Internet service. This plan will not be available to users in America. The plan has no definite date of release but Sarandos says "looking at it now, so we’ll see when."

The sooner the better Netflix launches this feature the greater the chill for some of us.

Netflix, launched across Africa on January 6, 2015. It launched in Kenya and South Africa and Nigeria. India, Nigeria, Russia and Saudi Arabia were among the major countries where the service was launched, Chief Executive of Netflix Reed Hastings said at a Consumer Electronics Show keynote in Las Vegas in January.

Netflix recently featured some African productions like Kunle Afolayan's "," Emem Isong's "," Biyi Bandele's "" among others.
