I'm planning on a flight to Canada and I worry that my flight might not have internet access to let me watch my selected Netflix titles for time killing. Can I watch Netflix without Internet?
Yes, of course, you can watch Netflix videos when you don't have an internet connection, like on the airplane, subway, or in a remote area. Netflix upgraded its app earlier to allow users to download videos for offline viewing. This will be handy for Netflix fans to continue enjoying their titles when there's no Wifi or cellular connection. Without further ado, let's check the two methods below to download Netflix movies & TV shows offline for watching without any internet accession.
With millions of binge-viewers worldwide, Netflix has a large content library of originals, films, documentaries, TV shows, etc and they are all being added continually. However, not all of the content can be downloaded offline, some titles are just unavailable to download because of the titles' rights.
The following's how it works on downloading Netflix titles offline via the app, and please get everything ready while you have a good internet connection.
Step 1 Launch Netflix on your laptop, phone, tablet, etc. And login using your Netflix account.
Step 2 Click the menu button in the upper-left corner of the Netflix app and select "Available for Download" in the drop-down menu list.
As we mentioned above: Not all videos are available to download, and here you can select the shown movies & TV shows to download.
Step 3 Go into "Settings" and select the output Netflix quality (standard or HD). Standard will save space and bandwidth but will be of lower video quality. If you have enough storage space, the setting of "High" will be recommended for a better resolution.
Step 4 Choose your preferred Netflix videos, then click the "Download" button to start downloading. You will see a notification at the bottom of the screen letting you know it’s downloading.
Step 5 After downloading, you can go back to Menu and click "My Downloads" buttons to see all of the content you’ve downloaded. And now you can enjoy them anywhere without the internet.
Not all devices can support the Netflix application, let alone download videos offline. So before everything starts, it's suggested to check if your devices are on the list.
If your device does not support using the latest version of Netflix, just check "How to Watch Netflix on Phone Without the App".
As Netflix fans, we should know that there are lots of limitations on Netflix downloads, for example, we can't keep over 100 Netflix downloads on a single device, we can't download the same title on over two or four devices (varied by the subscription plan), downloaded videos will expire after 48 hours or 7 days (varied by titles' rules), etc. In these cases, it will become difficult to continue binge-watching Netflix movies & TV shows in a non-internet environment. Luckily, here you'll get a powerful tool, NoteBurner Netflix Video Downloader, to help you get all Netflix titles downloaded as unlimited MP4 format, in which case you are capable of easily enjoying Netflix titles anytime anywhere.
