Moreover, you can’t download every video from Netflix. They provide the option only for some.

With that being said, let’s get into the core of the post. Follow the steps given below to download shows and movies from Netflix mobile app.

Step 1: First, you have to ensure that the Netflix app on your phone is up-to-date. In case you see a new Netflix version on Play Store, you must install it. (If you don’t get update and downloading option is absent on current version, go for the APK file for the latest Netflix version).

Step 2: Once you install the app, you can see a pop-up like screen as you open it. All you have to do is tapping on Find something to download link. Netflix will then show the list of shows and movies you can download.

Switching between Networks

By default, Netflix downloads the content only when you are using a Wi-Fi connection.

Are you rich enough to afford downloading shows and movies via your packet data? Then, you can switch the same settings to mobile data.

I recommend you keep this option as it is.

Different Video Qualities

Download Videos from Netflix

As of now, there are only two video qualities available; standard and high.

Netflix could have specified the pixel size of those video qualities. But they didn’t do so.

On a 720p screen, you will surely get pixelated visuals with the standard quality videos. When it comes to high quality, I think it is HD.

Selecting a Movie Separately to Download

Tapping on any of the list items will instantly start the playback.
