Soon you may be able to download Netflix movies to watch offline

Pretty soon, you may be able to take your Netflix viewing away from your internet router, if circulating rumors about the company's next move are to be believed.

As Gizmodo, Fortune, and more are reporting, the streaming service based in Los Gatos is considering a "download-to-go" option that would allow for subscribers to download movies onto devices to watch later, when they're away from an internet service provider.

That means anytime you're on an airplane, at a gym, or on the go with an appropriate Netflix streaming-capable electronic, you can catch up on new episodes of, say, "Orange is the New Black," "Peaky Blinders," or any offered movies you're interesting in viewing.

A communications trade company called LightReading, the organization behind the report, states that based on information received from Dan Taitz, the COO of mobile video company Penthera, as well as a Frost & Sullivan market research analyst, that the news of Netflix's new feature is an "open secret" in the streaming tech community. 

"From industry sources, I know that Netflix is out in the market negotiating to get download rights in addition to streaming rights," Taitz told Fortune recently. "Content providers are getting asked that now from Netflix so [Netflix] can offer a download service."

As Gizmodo reports, as recently as last month, Netflix's CEO Reed Hastings stated on an earnings call that the video streaming company should "keep an open mind" about enabling an offline video feature, but spokespeople haven't said much about the idea since. 

Amazon has a similar download-to-go feature that has been in operation for about a year.
