Netflix working on offline viewing feature, should debut by year’s end
Industry sources are confirming that Netflix will finally offer a download feature for offline viewing sometime before the end of the year.

CEO Reed Hastings has been evasive as to when (or even if) Netflix would offer this ability, but it has been a matter of conjecture for months. Industry insider, Dan Taitz, COO of Penthera, a company that makes software kits that enable mobile video, says Netflix will introduce a “download-to-go” feature for its applications.

It is expected that this feature rollout will not be as broad as what has been available from other services, like Amazon, or Comcast, meaning that downloading ability may be limited to select programs. An industry analyst with Frost & Sullivan further confirmed Netflix’s plans.

For its part, Netflix remains noncommittal, “While our focus remains on delivering a great streaming experience, we are always exploring ways to make the service better. We don’t have anything to add at this time,” said Anne Marie Squeo, Netflix spokeswoman.
