In their announcement, Netflix’s Director of Product Innovation Eddy Wu said the new feature is included in all plans. Plus, it’s available for both iOS and Android phones and tablets.

“Many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline,” Wu said.

All you have to do is click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series to watch it later without an internet connection. This is a serious binging game changer.

Recently, Netflix released a study about why some shows are so addicting in the first place. They searched for episodes that hooked and kept 70 percent of viewers who then went on to complete season one of the same series—and the results proved that binging is a universal thing.

How stoked are you to watch your favorite shows on the go? Let us know in the comments!
