Whether you’re a Netflix newbie or you’ve been a subscriber since their DVD-rental-only days, having their streaming service just got a whole lot better.
Digital downloads of TV shows and films for offline viewing. They’re not just for Amazon Prime subscribers anymore. Not since Netflix launched its download option for many, but nowhere near all, of its titles.
While the majority of Netflix’s Euro TV shows are available for download in the US, viewer favorites such as Danish crime drama Dicte and Danish dramedy Rita, as well as Case, the new Icelandic mystery/thriller that’s taken Euro TV fans by storm, aren’t among them. At least not yet (if ever).
Still, some is better than none when it comes to watching Euro TV shows without needing an internet or mobile data connection. Ditto that for Euro films, of which there are many more available for download than the 20 listed below.
It’s a start. And Netflix says more titles will be made available for download.
So here are 40 downloadable Euro TV and film titles — enough for you to watch leisurely or on a binge on your mobile device for weeks.
