In 2013, Netflix added film and television production, as well as online distribution. Netflix just keeps getting better because Netflix is now considering to let viewers watch TV or movie while offline.This like what you can already do with the rival Amazon Prime Streaming or music on Spotify. Amazing right?

"Netflix is working on an offline mode where you can stream TV shows and movies sans Wi-Fi," saidChief Content Officer Ted Sarandosin an interview with CNBC.

A year ago, Amazon made an enormous declaration by saying they're allowing Prime subscribers download TV episodes and movies for offline watching.Now, Netflix is considering to follow in those footsteps. For now, the feature is soon to be available to limited countries outside of the U.S.

The Los Gatos, California based company, has been expanding globally, and the service now reaches over 190 different territories. In just this year, Netflix has released an estimated 126 original series or films. That is more than any other network or cable channel. This October 2016, Netflix stated that there are over 86 million subscribers worldwide, including more than 47 million in the United States.

"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 behaviors to be much more of a downloading culture. So in those emerging territories it starts to become a little more interesting. We still think for the developed world our thesis has been true but I think as we get into more and more of the undeveloped world and developing countries that we want to find alternatives for people to use Netflix easily," said Sarandos

There is no announcement yet as to when these feature would roll out, but it is good to know Netflix is working into it.

"We're looking at it now, so we'll see when," Sarandos said.
