Richmond, Va. (WRIC) — Netflix now allows users to view their favorite shows and movies offline.

The popular streaming service announced Wednesday that members can download certain content to watch offline later. Netflix will be adding more content to download at a later date, but the company did not say all of its content will be available to watch offline.

Netflix originals Orange is the New Black, Narcos and The Crown are already available.

The download service is free for anyone with a Netflix membership. Users just need to update their app.
