By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard the great news that you can watch your favorite shows and movies on Netflix offline. The days of missing out on some quality binge-watching because you were unable to get an internet signal on the subway or an airplane are officially over.

If you have an Android or iOS device, here’s how you can download shows and movies, so you can watch them offline. Thankfully, Netflix has made this option super easy and available to all subscribers.

There are two different ways to get started. You can either click on the “Available for Download” option on the home screen.
