The feature allows you to download certain shows and movies to your Windows 10 device for later viewing without requiring an internet connection.

First introduced last year to mobile devices and tablets, Netflix offline viewing has finally come to Windows 10 devices, allowing users to download some content for later viewing. Like the functionality on smartphones and tablets, you won’t be able to download anything you want but rather a select number of movies and TV shows. Thankfully, Netflix has a menu item that will show you what shows you can download to your computer and watch later when you don’t have an internet connection.

To see a selection of what’s available for offline viewing, check out the Available for Download menu item.

You can also easily tell what shows or movies you can download as they are also indicated by Netflix’s download icon beside the movie or episode title on the detail page.

Once you’ve downloaded content, you can access it in the menu under the My Downloads menu item. This is definitely a feature I’ve been waiting for to come to Windows since it was first released, and it’ll definitely come in handy for pre-loading content for rainy camping nights or travelling.
