Just one month ago, Netflix announced the option to download select shows for offline viewing. That’s huge! No more being chained to Wi-Fi connections or binge watching at the mercy of extra data charges. You can now watch your favorite movies and shows while on the airplane, on vacation in remote dead zones, or wherever else you may be. The best part? Members can watch Netflix offline at no extra charge!
How to Download & Watch Netflix Offline
Since that announcement, several shows have been made available to download. This includes the brand new 26-episode series of Trollhunters, which was just released on December 23rd. You can browse these titles by tapping on the menu icon (three horizontal lines in the top left corner) on your mobile device and selecting “Available for Download.”
You can also go a movie or series information page. If this is available to watch offline, you will see a download icon below the movie title or next to the each episode (looks like a down arrow with a line under it).
Growing Library of Family TV Shows & Movies
While more shows will continue to be added, here are a few family-friendly tv series and movies to get you started. Yay for winter break and several days off from work!

I received a year subscription of Netflix and a device to stream the content as part of the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are my own.
