Netflix is great at providing awesome movies at a very high quality and reasonable file size. Netflix also provides offline viewing which is self reliable and time saving.
- GET UP TO DATE
First things first, you’ll need to make sure your Netflix app is up to date. If you don’t have your device set to auto update, simply click on the app in the App Store (you’ll need version 9.0 or later) for iOS devices, or do the same in the Google Play Store for Android devices. If you plan on using the Netflix app for Windows 10, select Store in the taskbar or Start menu, click your user icon, and select Downloads or Updates. Finally, select Check for Updates and the Netflix app will automatically be updated.
- CHOOSE YOUR DOWNLOADING QUALITY
Netflix offers two quality levels for downloads: Standard and High.
To choose, select the menu icon on the left and scroll down to App Settings. From there, under the Downloads heading, click or tap Video Quality and select your preferred quality. We’ll get into more details on how much space Netflix downloads take up later in this article.
- PICK YOUR OPTIONS
Not everything on Netflix is available for download, but the company has made downloadable titles easy to find by arranging them in a special section called simply Available for Download. To get there, click or tap the Menu button in the upper-left corner — it will be the first option below the Home section. If you’re searching for specific titles, simply look for the download icon, which is a downward arrow with a horizontal line beneath it.
- START DOWNLOADING
To begin downloading a title, simply select the Download icon similar to the show or movie you want to watch. There is one thing Android users will need to be aware of here: You can only download titles to the same storage device on which the Netflix app is stored. This means that, if you want to download content to an SD card, you’ll need to install the Netflix app there as well.
