Tip of the Week: How to Legally Download Videos From Netflix
Netflix is a great way to keep yourself entertained while on the go, but you can’t take it wherever you want. One great example of such a restriction is while you’re on a flight, where Wi-Fi isn’t permitted (or unnecessarily slow and expensive). Thanks to a couple of innovations implemented by Netflix, you can download videos for offline viewing through its mobile app.
Keep in mind that this requires that you have the official Netflix mobile app installed. You can’t just use the web browser on your device to download the videos. Furthermore, not every single video you find will be available for download, but there is still quite a large library to choose from. Your first step is to download the app.
To see the videos that are available for download, you just tap or click the button in the top-left side of the screen and select Available for Download. For your selected videos, a down arrow will appear with the word Download next to it.
Any downloaded videos you have can be found in the Netflix app. Just click the menu and select My Downloads. This will show you all of the details that you need to know, such as how large they are. This is especially important to preserve space on your devices, as you never know what you’ll need to do with it while you’re on a trip.
Now let’s say that you need to delete a video from your downloads. To do this, just select the show and click the Downloaded button. You will then be shown a window that allows you to Delete Download. Once you’ve done this, just select the videos that you want to delete by checking the boxes in the right-hand corners. Once you’ve done this, just click the trash can and you’ll delete any of your selected videos.
