One of the biggest flaws of Netflix was the fact offline viewing mode was not available. But, the company changed the game. Last year, Netflix introduced a new feature to its users, the ability to download movies and TV shows and watch them offline. However, this feature was available only for mobile apps. Now, the things got even more interesting. You can download Netflix movies and TV shows on Windows 10. In other words, you can watch your favorite content on your laptop or desktop computer even when you are offline.
