Today I’m gonna teach you step by step how to download movies on Netflix and thus be able to use the platform 100% offline. With your active account it is very simple.
When platforms of this type began to emerge, only Amazon’s Prime Video allowed to visualize its contents without having to connect to the network. Of course, previously you should have downloaded (within the same app) the movie, series or documentary of your interest. Well, now you can also download Netflix movies on your mobile. We’ll explain how.
Before you continue reading, we must warn you that this is not a “pirate” manual to download free Netflix movies, nor will we promote the known Netflix Downloader. This is due to several reasons (sure you agree with them):
- The first point is legality. At Technolotal we do not support any type of illegal download or protected by copyright. That’s why we’re not going to tell you how to download paid content for free, or anything like that. The purpose of this tutorial is to learn how to download movies on Netflix from your account (legal and paid for by subscription).
- The second, but not least, is for your security and privacy. Sometimes, in order to see the latest release, we end up in pages of dubious reliability or with third-party apks that end up infecting our devices or obtaining our personal data (for example, our phone number..).
In order to download series/movies on Netflix, you must comply with a series of requirements:
- Have the latest version of the application installed.
- Have an active account at the moment.
- Operating system iOS 9.0 or higher / Android 4.4.2 or higher.
- Internet connection (better Wifi than data)
How to download movies on Netflix (or series) to watch offline 2020
Netflix allows its users with active accounts to view offline content. As we have already mentioned in requirements, this option is available with the latest version of the app on mobile devices superior to iOS 9 or Android 4.4.2, and computers with Windows 8 or higher.
In the user session there is a section with available series and movies, the title that you want to download is selected and saved in the list of downloads from where the action is executed. Once there, it will be enabled to be viewed at any time and place, even without a connection available to the network.
We explain it step by step for Android or iOS (in the app)
- Open the application.
- Give the three horizontal bars (menu) top left.
- Under “Start” you will see the option “Available for Download” .download netflix series
netflix offline catalog
- Here you will find all the content you can download on Netflix (this is because there are some exceptions, depending on your area)
- Once you have chosen the movie or series to download, you can directly click on the download button (accompanied by a down arrow)
And if you already know what movie you want to watch offline, you do not need to go to the menu. Follow these steps:
- Open the application.
- Go to the search engine: the magnifying glass icon on the top right.
- Enter the name of the content you want to download.
- Inside the movie, you will see the “Download” button next to an arrow pointing down.
Where are the Netflix downloads stored?
If you want to see all your finished or in process downloads, go to the menu again and then to “My downloads“, there you will see everything you can see offline on Netflix.
In the image above we can see in process and finished downloads. As you can see, the series (in this case, “Parenthood“) stores them in a kind of folder, and inside it you will find each chapter downloaded individually.
In the case of downloads in process, here “the secret life of pets“, they will be marked in blue until completed. Underneath you can “Search more …” and find more content to see offline from the application.
If you are interested in getting Netflix for free or that you can’t pay for the premium plan, we, at Technolotal.net, giving away a series of Free Netflix Accounts (Updated every month).
If you get lucky, you’ll find yours there and enjoy the platform without paying any penny. Good Luck..
