In another significant innovation, Netflix will now allow for offline playback, letting users download content while not using a data connection.
Editor’s Remarks: As of this week, users of Netflix will be allowed to access certain shows and films without being online, such as Orange Is The New Black and The Crown. The service marks a big step for Netflix in becoming increasingly accessible and puts competitors who produce unique content further behind. The media industry and communications industry have acknowledged the focus in advertising sales moving further online and onto video content with increasing numbers of M&A deals between both sectors.
What to watch: Netflix, Amazon, Comcast, AT&T, Verizon
