The Real Reason Netflix Won’t Offer Offline Downloads ➝

Neil Hunt, Netflix chief product officer, speaking with Gizmodo:

I think it’s something that lots of people ask for. We’ll see if it’s something lots of people will use. Undoubtedly it adds considerable complexity to your life with Amazon Prime – you have to remember that you want to download this thing. It’s not going to be instant, you have to have the right storage on your device, you have to manage it, and I’m just not sure people are actually that compelled to do that, and that it’s worth providing that level of complexity.

Only time will tell, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s right about this.
