Not every Netflix title is available to watch offline, but there are more than a few choice titles you can stream on the go.
So, you’re going off the grid? Heading out into the wild blue Wi-Fi-less yonder and into technology-impaired parts unknown? Good for you! But take it from us: the serenity and grand majesty of ol’ Mother Nature is overrated – in fact, it’s pretty boring out there. Ideally, you’ll want to have some Netflix stuff preloaded on your device to keep yourself entertained.
That said, storage space is going to be painfully limited, so you’ll need to prioritize and sort yourself out with nothing but the absolute best TV shows and movies. This is where we come in. We give you an even mix of short-fix cinema and long-form TV seasons to keep you entertained out there in non-civilization.
