Here’s how to download Netflix videos for offline viewing!


Wondering how to download Netflix movies and TV shows? Netflix is the most popular streaming service for movies and TV shows out there. The company has well over 200 million global subscribers and its content is frequently among the cultural zeitgeist (Squid Game, anyone?).

Of course, one of the big complaints about Netflix is that it’s hard to find movies and TV shows you want to watch. Discoverability has always been an issue here. But to be fair to Netflix, they have been trying to make discoverability easier in recent years, and their algorithms that suggest what to watch next do seem to have gotten better as of late.

But as for downloading Netflix content to watch for offline viewing – thankfully Netflix has made that as easy as possible. Here’s how to use their mobile app to download content for offline viewing.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Netflix allows for downloading of full TV show seasons at a time. This means that if you want to download an entire season of a TV show, you’ll need to manually download every episode in that season manually.
