No Wifi No Worries! Download Zones Now Available In Ontario

No Wifi No Worries! Download Zones Now Available In Ontario


The days are longer and the weather is getting warmer, which means my family just got a heck of a lot busier. We barely have time to lounge around and watch a movie let alone binge watch any of our favourite shows new season. If it wasn’t for my DVR, TV Streaming and being able to utilize the new feature of downloading from Netflix on the go. I would be missing out on some of my favourites when I do have a little bit of downtime.

Netflix’ new feature of downloading on the go is the greatest option for busy families like mine. Since my kids don’t have screen time during the week and the weekends are pretty much full, sometimes the only place for the kids to watch a little bit of screen is while we are in the car driving to far places. I like to be fully prepared for car rides with healthy snacks and their favourite shows loaded to their iPad. It gives me a peace of mind and makes the car rides more enjoyable.

What I love about the Netflix download feature is that even if you don’t have Wifi you can still enjoy by downloading. This summer my family and I plan to have some downtime at a cottage and Netflix has just announced some exciting news that many parents will appreciate. From May 19th to September 1 Netflix and Rogers have partnered together to provide Netflix download zones at various locations in Ontario. So if you are travelling and you are near some of these zones get downloading! Here are some shows that my kids like that are also downloadable for you to check out. Remember you never have to miss a show with Netflix download on the GO!

    I think it is great that these options are now available to people with no wi fi. This means they will be able to do their work or enjoy social media when they are out and about.

    This is genius for traveling with kids! We have several trips planned this summer and my son is obsessed with his Netflix channel – which is hard when we’re on the road.

    I wish more municipalities would take on projects like this. It’s the wave of the future and only makes cities more competitive.

    This is definitely something all towns should offer. It would help those who have no wifi.

    Fantastic! I love the download zones idea. This is a great campaign and would benefit people who would just want to download Netflix movies without taking their data charges to the roof.
