    You can and you can set up a profile for him too. He'll see US content on his profile while you see PH content.

    3 episodes in "Friends from College" and I am liking it! It's like a darker version of Friends.

    hmm wonder what we're doing differently? i have a Sony Bravia 4k UHD TV, set up the custom DNS on the TV itself, as I didn't want the DNS change to be global. I tried setting it up from the router itself and my 100Mbps connection with Globe got halved in the speedtests and noticed a bit of lag with other sites. I'm using the Singapore and HK DNS addresses.

    I hear it doesnt work on the Apple TV though..?

    thanks, you just need to use their DNS with a paid subscription of getflix?

    I really appreciate Netflix's Download feature. Good for long plane flights with limited video menus.

    My son scared the hell out of me when I saw him watching 13 Reasons over his phone with his SMART sim still in roaming here in Muscat.

    I thought he is consuming data via roaming but it turns out he is using the offline feature of the netflix app.

    I just wish there is way for this offline feature to work in the macbook too.

    Care to share if there is one?

    there should be a download option when you log in to netflix.com, right? i use the ipad app, not my macbook air, so i'm not sure, but logically there should be one.

    Based on my inquiry, it seems like the offline feature is only for iphone and ipad netflix app and of course its android counterpart.

    My old ipad mini 1 is dedicated to offline content, good for marathon watching.

    i think the download feature is disabled for laptops or desktops for anti piracy purposes. easier to distribute content via computers as opposed to content in ipads/iphones.
