After years of customer requests and demands, one of the leading streaming services around the globe, Netflix finally added an offline viewing feature to their Android and iOS apps. This implies that people who use iPad, iPhone, or Android devices can now download and store their favorite movies and TV shows offline. What makes this feature even more interesting is that users can watch these video contents when they don’t have an active internet connection.
One of the major rivals of Netflix, Amazon Prime has been offering this service for quite some time now. However, the downfall is that the downloadable content on Amazon Prime is very limited. On the other hand, Netflix has a plethora of downloadable contents. Below is how to download and watch Netflix films and shows on your tablet.
Android and iPad tablet users who are unable to find the Download & Go screen on their Netflix app should update the app to the latest available version. However, if you are still not able to see the feature even after updating the app, uninstall the app from your tablet, and reinstall it after a couple of minutes to solve the issue.
Now you will most likely see a Download & Go splashscreen on the screen of your tablet after opening the app. If you do not see such a splashcreen, you can find the Available to Downloadsection right on the side menu of the app. Click on OK to go to a menu with contents that are currently available for download. However, note that not all contents on Netflix would be available for offline viewing due to licensing issues.
You can find plenty of movies and TV shows once you are in the Available to Download menu of the Netflix app. All of the Netflix original TV shows including “Stranger Things” and “Narcos” are available for download. If you have already selected a show or movie, simply click on its thumbnail. Now you will be redirected to a page with a Download icon. All you need to do now is to simply click on the icon.
If you are still not able to download Netflix video contents to your tablet, it is best to get in touch with a technician for further assistance.
