Netflix has released a new feature called Smart Downloads for its Android app which will be making its way to the iOS version of the app later this year.
Netflix is looking to once again raise prices by superseding its existing Premium plan with a new ‘Ultra’ tier. As reported by Tutto Android, this new ‘Ultra’ streaming tier from Netflix will offer the exact same benefits as the existing Premium tier which includes 4K streaming for up to 4 devices simultaneously.
The latest update to Netflix for iOS introduces mobile previews which shows a 30-second preview of new content vertically to help you decide whether you should watch it or not. The company had first introduced video previews to its TV, web, and Fire TV app last year.
It has been over a year since Netflix changed its monthly pricing options, and now, according to a new report, change is on the horizon.
Recently, Disney confirmed that its distribution deal with Netflix would be coming to a close by the time the new release schedule for 2019 rolled around.
Netflix landed a pretty big deal in 2012 when it acquired the ability to start streaming Disney movies from the platform, of which the fruits of that deal only really started to crop up.
Finally, Netflix has introduced offline playback feature for its mobile apps – for the iPhone and iPad. There’s no offline support for desktop users. Given the risk of increased piracy, that makes sense. But this move means that you’ll be able to binge watch your new favorite Netflix find when you’re community on the metro or when you’re on a vacation, far from cheap/stable internet connection.
Netflix, the video streaming service, hasn’t offered an offline playback option for customers up to this point, but that could be changing.
