In other Trek media news, Netflix has released a long-awaited offline viewing mode for many of their streaming titles, allowing users to download compressed versions of their catalog without an active data connection – and all six Star Trek television series have been included in their downloadable listings.

New updates released today for Android and iOS versions of the Netflix app have launched this functionality in the United States – and presumably other regions, though we’ve not tested outside of the USA.

The updated Android app, featuring the new Netflix video download option.

If you’re a regular visitor to TrekCore, you know we’re huge proponents of physical media – we love our remastered Blu-rays and the DVD editions of the other Trek selections, and of course Netflix doesn’t include the dozens of hours of bonus material or audio commentary tracks – but this will surely be a convenience for those of you wanting to binge on the Roddenberry universe without running up your mobile bill.
