It just got even easier to binge on Netflix.

Netflix announced on Wednesday members now have the option to download movies and shows to watch offline later. This means you can finally watch the new season of Stranger Things and Bloodline while on a flight or stuck in the subway.

The feature comes free of cost with all Netflix memberships. Members will want to make sure they have the most recent Netflix app on their Android or iOS devices to access the new “download” button.

Not everything is already available to download — you won’t find Orange Is the New Black, Narcos, The Crown or the new season of the Girlmore Girls through the offering.

But the company said the offering does include many member “favorites.”

Up until now, you need a place with a reliable internet connection to access the streaming service. But Netflix wants to make its product more nimble to suit the lives of those on-the-go.

The company previously argued the feature was unnecessary, calling it a “short term fix for a bigger problem.” That problem, of course, being wireless internet availability.

But its competitor Amazon Prime embraced offline downloads for iOS and Android users more than a year ago.

According to Netflix’s Help Center page, “you’ll want to delete” downloaded titles before attempting to download new content.

It is unclear as of now if there’s a cap on how many shows or films people can download at once.

Netflix did not immediately respond to CNNMoney’s request for comment.
