One of the best features I love about Netflix is that I can download content to my iPad and watch anywhere without needing wifi. And now Netflix has taken that to the next level by introducing Netflix Download Zones in Ontario cottage country. By stopping at the designated zones, you can download (for free) your must-see Netflix shows and movies to your device. The zones will be available over each of the long weekends this summer (Victoria Day, Canada Day, Civic Holiday, Labour Day) at various locations including Bass Pro Shop, Collingwood, Gravenhurst, and Huntsville (see exact locations below).
Parents will appreciate the hotspots that will give their kids a chance to download their favourite shows to watch in the car as they battle Highway 400 traffic to cottage country. It’s a helpful solution to beat the “are we there yet” blues.
Whether you’ll be watching from the dock, on the deck, in the car, on the hammock, in a tent, or under the stars, you can enjoy Netflix wherever you may be this summer.
Disclosure: As a member of Netflix Canada’s Stream Team, I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with Netflix. As always, all opinions are my own.
