Yesterday Netflix dropped the bomb: its contents would finally be available offline. This option has been expected and demanded by the users of the platform for a long time and it seems that at last the company – perhaps motivated by the expansion of other services , exemplifies to give us the satisfaction. Now that you know you have that feature on hand, you’re probably wondering how it’s used. Sorry, that’s what we’re here for.
How to download your Netflix content to enjoy offline
The first and most important thing to know is that the download is not enabled for the whole catalog or on all platforms. Only selected house titles can be enjoyed offline and the option will only appear in the applications of the firm for iOS and Android – therefore forget to make a download from the web on your laptop, for example.
Once you have updated your application – it is necessary that you have the latest available version of the Netflix app – a new option will appear in it from now on in your user menu (on the left of the screen). This is the ‘Available for download’ section, which will give you access to those content that Netflix allows you to enjoy offline. The catalog, although not 100% of the service, is extensive, with the offer of all chapters of productions of the house as ‘ Stranger Things ‘, ‘ Narcos ‘, ‘ Sense 8 ‘, ‘ Orange is the new Black ‘ and Of other “external” titles, either the wonderful series ‘ Breaking Bad ‘, the film ‘ Intocable ‘ or the documentary ‘ The Bulli ‘, to name just a few.
When you enter each title, they will all show you a download icon, which you will only have to click to proceed to save the content to your account for your offline enjoyment – what to say you have to do it also include the audio options and the Subtitle. In the case of series, the icon appears next to each episode.
Video quality can also be chosen, although it must be prior to download. To do so, go to Settings (in the user menu) => Downloads and select in Video Quality if you want the contents to be downloaded in standard or high quality. In this configuration you can also select if you want the downloads to be done only via WiFi and check the memory status of your device and how many are occupying your movies or series episodes.
Now tell us, do you have Netflix and have already tried the download? Did you also expect this option?
