Every night while laying in bed with my glass of boxed wine and delivery pizza, I know that even if I don’t have a guy to text or something to do, that I’ll always have an endless form on entertainment on hand as long as I have my Netflix subscription and working wifi. Once I drag my butt out of bed, however, things go downhill immediately. Sure, I could stream Netflix on my phone, but who has the data for that? Not to mention that my iPad isn’t always connected to wifi, so hours and hours of car rides that I could have spent catching up on House of Cards have passed by, boring and uneventfully.
However, this may all be about to change. According to insiders at Netflix, our favorite streaming service may be about to launch a download-to-play service as early as the next two months. Dan Taitz, the current COO of another mobile streaming service, says:
“We know from our sources within the industry that Netflix is going to launch this product…[m]y expectation is that by the end of the year Netflix will be launching download-to-go as an option for their customers.”
He’s not the only one confirming this story either. Another industry analyst, Dan Rayburn said:
“It’s a natural progression for Netflix to want to have some of their content available for consumers to watch offline, and we’ve been hearing for months now that they are in fact going to roll something out soon.”
Unsurprisingly, Netflix has also commented that this is something they are considering,but haven’t made a statement yet as to its official release, but with all of this insider scoop, I know that I’m personally going to leave some room in my budget for the upgraded Netflix cost I’m sure this will necessitate, as well as purchase some extra NFLX stock with my Christmas bonus. As of right now, though, I’d better get back to work while I still can, before downloadable Netflix streaming makes me officially the least productive member of society to ever exist. .
