After rolling out offline viewing for Netflix's iOS and Android apps last year, the streaming giant is now extending the option to desktop. Netflix announced today that Windows 10 users can download Netflix shows and movies and then watch them offline.

As is the case on iOS and Android, not everything on Netflix is available to download. A lot of Netflix original content is available for offline viewing, while Breaking Bad and Parks and Recreation are also available. Here's a trailer that Netflix released to promote the announcement:

The offline viewing option for Netflix does not cost extra. The ability to download TV shows and movies is not available yet on consoles or other Netflix streaming apps.

In other Netflix news, the company has renewed its Drew Barrymore zombie/cannibal show The Santa Clarita Diet and announced four more movies with Adam Sandler.
