Nov 30 Video streaming pioneer Netflix Inc
said its subscribers would now be able to download
popular shows such as "Orange is The New Black" and "Narcos" on
their mobile devices at no extra cost.
"While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we've
often heard they also want to continue their 'Stranger Things'
binge while on airplanes and other places where Internet is
expensive or limited," Eddy Wu, director of product innovation,
wrote in a blog post.
Netflix, whose other popular original shows include "House
of Cards" and "The Crown", has expanded into almost all
countries, with China being a notable exception.
The new feature is included in all plans and available for
phones and tablets on Alphabet Inc's Android and Apple
Inc's iOS platforms, the company said.
