Netflix is finally doing what many of its users have been wanting for years - making its content available for offline viewing.

With Netflix programming continuing to gain in popularity, there has been even more demand to have such content available to download. After all, using up your phone data to binge House of Cards on the train isn't exactly the most practical option.

Therefore, Netflix is now rolling out the ability to download content so that you don't even need an internet connection. This update is currently available on Android and iOS phones and tablets.

After downloading the new Netflix update, all you have to do is go to a show or movie's details page and tap on the download button to begin your offline viewing. There is no additional cost to your subscription.

Not all content is downloadable yet, though. The company is planning on making other shows and movies available to download at a later date, but some content is available to watch offline right now.

"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. For example, 'Orange is The New Black', 'Narcos' and 'The Crown' are available for download today," the company says in a new blog post.

Netflix has become the streaming leader in America due to its mix of great original content and shows and movies from all eras. Many of its shows have gone on to great critical acclaim, including Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Master of None, Stranger Things, Bloodline, Making a Murderer, Narcos and The Crown. The company has also branched out into original movies, including Beasts of No Nation, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, Tallulah, Special Correspondents and the upcoming Barack Obama biopic Barry.
