According to the rumor mill, Netflix might actually have an offline video solution ready by the end of the year. The article doesn't cite any real sources, mostly industry "insiders" and such, but it's nice to think Netflix might actually be working on this.

Industry gossip from a technology vendor is one thing, but Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Dan Rayburn confirms that Netflix Inc. is developing a downloading solution and says that it's something of an open secret in the streaming video community. "It's a natural progression for Netflix to want to have some of their content available for consumers to watch offline, and we've been hearing for months now that they are in fact going to roll something out soon," says Rayburn.
