You can now watch Netflix offline (but not the new 'Gilmore Girls', sorry)

Netflix has been teasing the idea for a while, but finally it's a reality: the streaming service's 86.7 million subscribers can now watch films and TV series on their phones or tablets even when they're not connected to the internet.

Which means that you better get used to seeing commuters watching 'The Crown', 'Stranger Things' or 'Narcos' on the tube. All those shows are now available to watch offline. But one significant binge favourite isn't: you still have to be connected to the internet to watch 'Gilmore Girls', at least for now. Sorry, folks.

Netflix had this to say about the change to their service. 'While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we've often heard they also want to continue their "Stranger Things" binge while on airplanes and other places where internet is expensive or limited.'

This new addition to the Netflix service is available via the updated Netflix app for both iOS and Android as long as you've got at least iOS 8.0 or Android 4.4.2. Just hit the 'download' option in the 'details' section of your streaming choice.

There goes the last chance of you striking up a conversation with a stranger on the bus to the work.
