Netflix fans, do you want to be able to watch the series and movies in the catalog in offline mode? To do this, simply download the episode or feature film you are interested in directly from the Netflix website or application. We’ll tell you how to do it. Follow the guide!

“While many subscribers enjoy watching Netflix at home, we know that they also like to continue watching the latest episode of Stranger Things on airplanes or other expensive mobile Internet locations,” says Eddy Wu, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.

Before downloading a Netflix series or movie

To download a movie or series from the Netflix catalog, you must have the latest version of the application anda smartphone with Android 4.4.2 or iOS 9 (minimum) or a computer running Windows 10 version 1607 or later. Users on MacOS, Linux, or Ubuntu currently cannot download series or movies.

Please note that not all content is available for download. Most of the series and movies offered for download are original programs produced by Netflix, such as Sense 8, 13 Reasons Why or Luke Cage. Also remember that everything you download is stored in the internal memory of your device. So don’t forget to clean up from time to time.

Before you begin downloading, you are prompted tocustomize the download settings:

  • Open the Netflixapplication.
  • Go to Application settings
  • Tick Wi-Fi only (to avoid toasting all your data for no reason)
  • Go to Video Quality and choose Standard (if you’re a little low on internal storage) or High (if you want to enjoy HD on the go).
