Netflix on a flight? No way, you say? The idea has seemed out of reach for years, because Netflix doesn’t let its U.S. subscribers download video for offline viewing.
However, rumors suggest customers in countries with unreliable broadband may soon get the feature. Meanwhile, in-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo is working to upgrade the speed of its service on airplanes to support streaming video. Other competitors, including Viasat, offer fast, video-friendly service via satellite. And Amazon Prime members can download some Prime video to their mobile devices for offline use
