Netflix is now providing a free option that users have been asking about for a long time: the ability to watch stuff offline. Not everything is available for download, notes Gizmodo, but big titles such as Orange Is the New Black and Stranger Things are, and more titles are "on the way," Netflix says in a statement. To begin offline playback, look for the download button in the Netflix app once you've updated to the latest version. It works on both Apple and Android phones and tablets. (More Netflix stories.)
