How to Download Movies and TV Shows with Netflix?


As we posted earlier Netflix has added the ability for all to download movies and TV shows. By now the feature is available as an update to the existing app. Once you download the app, Netflix has kept it pretty easy to do the job. As of now not many movies and TV shows are available for offline download. However, there is still a lot of content for you to download.

As said in the main article, the download feature comes especially useful for those who don’t have a data pack. You can see your downloaded content while traveling on the plane or when you are out of network coverage. Moreover, when not on Wi-Fi it will save your mobile data. Below is how you can download content from on Netflix.
