Praise be! The time has very-nearly-sort-of come for Netflix users to watch it offline.

After saying they were 'keeping an open mind' to the prospect of users streaming their shows without Wi-Fi or broadband connection earlier this year, the big hotshots over at Netflix have spoken out about off-air viewing once again.

And while it's not yet a definitive yes, things are looking up – mostly due to the lack of reliable Wi-Fi and slower streaming services in different parts of the world.

The streaming service's chief content officer explains:

"We have talked a lot about this over the years, and our belief is that broadband and Wi-Fi become more and more ubiquitous, available in more and more places that you are, more and more minutes of the day. Now as we've launched in more territories… They all have different levels of broadband speeds and Wi-Fi access. So in those countries, they have adapted their behaviors to be much more of a downloading culture. So in those emerging territories, it starts to become a little more interesting. We still think for the developed world our thesis has been true, but I think as we get into more and more (of the) undeveloped world and developing countries that we want to find alternatives for people to use Netflix easily. [We're] looking at it now, so we'll see when".

It's not a yes and it's not a no, but can they just hurry up and decide already?
