If you commute via public transit, you know just how painful the whole experience can be, but it did get better when we all got phones. You can listen to music, stream videos and play games on your commute — all until the dreaded moment when you lose your cell service. However, it looks like we can soon expect a major change in the offline commuting game, thanks to Netflix.

According to a report from a communications trade company, LightReading, it’s something of an industry-wide open secret that Netflix is working on offline viewing. Translation: You will soon be able to binge through OITNB even without an internet connection! The feature is predicted to roll out by the end of the year.

If the “download-and-go” feature does debut this year, Netflix would not be the first internet streaming service to offer it. A few of the company’s competitors — Amazon Prime and YouTube Red — have offered the convenient feature since last year. But cross your fingers, everyone.

The subway ride to work is about to get so much more entertaining.
