You can download Netflix movies and TV shows onto your phone or tablet by tapping the arrow icon on their details page.
Once you’ve downloaded Netflix movies, you can find them on the app’s Downloads page.
Netflix downloads can be watched at any time, even if you don’t have internet.
Netflix remains the most popular video streaming service around. But as convenient as streaming over the internet is, sometimes you need to watch videos without internet – if you’re planning to fly on a plane, visit a remote location, or otherwise be away from Wi-Fi, you might want something saved to your phone or tablet for offline playback.
Netflix makes it easy to download video to a mobile device for just these kinds of situations. Here’s how to do it. Important: You can only download Netflix titles on smartphones and some tablets, like the iPad. You can’t download them onto your computer, game console, or television.
How to download movies and shows from Netflix
1. Open the Netflix app and find the movie or TV show you want to download, and then tap it to open its details page. If you’re downloading a show, also find the episode you want.
2. Tap the download button, which is shaped like a downward-pointing arrow. The button will change to indicate it’s downloading, and after a few moments (depending on the speed of your internet connection and the length of the video) it’ll finish. You can tell it’s been downloaded because you’ll see an icon representing your mobile device instead of the Download button.
Movies only have a single download button, while a TV series will generally have a separate download button for each episode. Also, note that not every video on Netflix can be downloaded – due to licensing issues, you may find that there’s no download button available for a movie you want to save.
