We really love Netflix. This is because they have shows and movies for everyone. In fact, they database is full of movies and TV shows in every genre. Not only that, but they also have latest content. Apart from that, you will find that you will be able to watch their content ad free, which comes as a relief for most of us who just hate commercial in-between shows. Another great thing is that for series lovers, they will be able to watch their favourite shows as Netflix keeps all episodes online. However, that is not all. Another really exciting thing is that you can watch Netflix offline, on your mobile. Let’s explore that a little further.
Users are able to download select movies and TV shows via the Netflix app. Excitingly, the Netflix app is compatible with iOS, Android, as well as PC. This will allow you to watch the shows and movies while offline. This is quite a great innovation considering the fact that at times, you will visit remote places or board a flight without enough great content. We haven’t heard a lot of noise about this app and we are surprised why. We have concluded that most people just don’t know how this works yet. Therefore, here is a guide on how to do download movies and TV shows from Netflix so that you can do it too.
The really great thing about this app is that when you download a series, the app will delete the episodes that you would have watched automatically. This is quite a great feature as it makes watching your favourite shows offline quite easier.
One thing that you should note, though, is that not everything on Netflix is available for download. Trying to circumvent this restriction is not legal so we suggest that you do not try it.
Downloading content via the Netflix app
It’s so easy to download movies and TV shows for offline use when using Netflix. All you will need is a compatible mobile operating system. For Android phones, you will need to have 4.4.2 or later. For iOS, you must have iOS 12 or later. Next, you must make sure that the Netflix app that you have installed on your phone is up-to-date.
The Netflix is available to download from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store free so make sure that you grab it. If you are on PC, you can download from the latest version of the official app. However, it should be noted that you will not be able to download any shows or movies if you are watching via your browser.
When you have downloaded the app onto your devices, you will be required to sign in and if you do not have an account, you can sign up and receive 1 month free. You will then need to navigate to the “Available for Download.” There, you will be able to find all the content that is available for you to download. Don’t fret if your favourite show is not available for download because Netflix has said that more shows are on their way.
When you have found something that you want, you can select it, and then make sure that you tap on the Download icon. The movie or show will start downloading. Excitingly, you are able to watch some other shows, or download more while the other one is in progress.
