Two pieces of Netflix news caught my eye in the last week. The addition of downloads to the Netflix service will really allow me to make the very most of it, it is a very welcome feature. And one of my favourite shows when I was a kid is coming to Netflix at the end of the month!
Netflix has always been a streaming service. Until now that is. Now you can download your favourite series and films so you can have them with you when you don’t have an internet connection. This is extremely useful for me as I live in rural Wexford and we don’t have amazing broadband so often streaming results in sitting waiting watching a loading icon go round and round. Now we can download and watch at our own convenience. This is also great for long car journeys, we often do a 4 hour trip to see my parents, now I can download the boys’ Animal Mechanicals or Dinotrux and they can watch on the way. There is no extra cost for this service and it is available on Android and iOS. Make sure you have the latest update of the Netflix app and off you go.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is coming to Netflix at the end of the month! Eep! A teenage favourite, I loved this show growing up. I’m actually really excited to watch this with my 8 year old, I think he’ll love the humour. Series 1-6 streaming on Netflix Ireland from 31st December. Watch out for it!
Disclosure: I am part of the Netflix Stream Team, and I received a free subscription to the service in return for writing updates and reviews. I had my own Netflix subscription prior to joining and as always all opinions expressed are my own.
