Your Favourite Netflix Shows Might Start Looking Different on Your Phone

How do you watch Netflix? If you live here, you probably primarily watch your favourite shows or movies on your TV—or at the very least a laptop—but thanks to features like offline viewing and more generous mobile data plans, mobile usage has increased.
