In advance of holiday travel, Netflix has finally launched a feature subscribers have been wanting from the very beginning: the option to download movies and shows to watch offline.

Netflix deployed the feature for its iOS and Android apps today, meaning that once you update your phone or tablet, you can start downloading episodes of The Crown and Narcos to get you through your next flight or trip anywhere with spotty wifi.

While not everything that's streaming is available for download (non-Netflix productions require download rights from networks and studios), there seems to be a hefty selection that's collected in a separate menu on the app. A quick scroll reveals that The Office, Parks & Recreation, Freaks & Geeks, Pulp Fiction, Breaking Bad, Good Will Hunting, and The Twilight Zone are just some of the titles available for download. Things you download will also live in a list in the menu for reference.

What are you downloading first?
