How to download Netflix movies and TV shows.
For now, downloading titles for offline playback is limited to the Netflix app, which is currently available for both iOS and Android.
The functionality is also built into the Netflix app for Windows 10, assuming you’re running Windows 10 Anniversary Updateor later.
The process is straightforward enough: Just open Netflix, choose download quality, and select the download option (when available) for offline viewing.
The following general instructions should work for iOS, Android, and Windows 10, despite being specific to the latter.

Netflix: The best bew releases for 2018.
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 begin updating.

Then you will need to pick your download quality. Netflix offers two quality levels - Standard (720p) and High (1080p) for download. Standard definition will use less space on your device and will download faster.
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.
Once that is done, all you need to do is choose which TV show or movie to watch from the thousands of titles available for download.
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.
Here’s How You Can Watch Netflix Offline (Without An Internet Connection)
You can now watch whatever you want—even without an internet connection!
In addition to streaming their favorite titles, Netflix fans can now download certain titles—at no extra cost—for offline viewing. This can prove handy if you want to watch a show on an airplane, where internet access is expensive and usually not streaming-compatible, or during a long car ride when your service may be spotty.
Netflix says that many of your favorites are already available for download, with more on the way. Given the complexities of licensing, Netflix is beginning this feature with their own titles, including “Orange Is The New Black,” “Narcos,” and “The Crown,” and will continue adding more content in the future.
To download titles from Netflix on your device, you will need the following:
An iPhone, iPad, or iPod running iOS 9.0 or later A phone or tablet running Android 4.4.2 or later A tablet or computer running Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update) or later An internet connection* An active Netflix streaming account The latest version of the Netflix Apple iOS, Netflix Android, or Netflix Windows 10 app.

Here’s what the feature looks like (below), and it’s available for phones and tablets running Android or iOS. You will need to update your device’s Netflix app to the most recent version. Here’s a link to the Netflix help department to learn more.
You’ve already been able to do this with certain titles on Amazon Prime Video, and now Netflix is following suit.
As TechCrunch notes, “You can also select from two different quality options, depending on whether you want to prioritize video quality or device storage space.” This is a handy feature as handheld devices such as phones and tablets have far less storage capacity than the average desktop computer, after all.
Bottom line, it’s a great feature from the Netflix folks, so charge up those devices and start watching—wherever you go.
