Netflix is hot. Many users are already subscribers to this streaming and series viewing service. But many people do not know that, in addition, they can download many of the series and movies to see later, without Internet connection. No one knows for sure how many subscribers Netflix has in Spain (there are surveys, but do not stop being that, surveys). What is clear, and indeed is recognized by the entire industry, is that Netflix , along with the competition of Rakuten TV , HBO or Filmin , among others, have helped reduce piracy. Instead of all this, you could even get the 123movies downloader.
Watch Movies & Series Easily
Once for many users, the simplest was to go to the Internet and illegally download audiovisual content. Now, it’s even easier to watch movies and series legally, thanks to platforms like Netflix, which for a monthly fee (from about 8 euros) allow unlimited viewing of your catalog.
However, in order to enjoy these contents you always had to have an Internet connection : it was a streaming vision, that is, while you were connected to the network you could see the series or movie, as it was downloaded as you You see her, right now.
However, in December 2016 the Los Gatos (California) company decided to add an option at no extra costto its movie and series download customers on their devices . And best of all is that it is the sea of simple.
It is, therefore, a legal form of downloading of contents , which, for reasons of rights, does not apply to the whole catalog , but to a good part of the films and series that it offers.
In addition, it is necessary to point out that it is a temporary download : the content is self-destructive in a few days (usually a week, but depends on the title) so that it does not occupy memory unnecessarily. After that time, if desired, the user can re-download the series or movie in the same way that it did.
The title, by the way, is downloaded with all available audio and subtitle languages and can only be played in the same Netflix app.

Once found and selected, in the menu of the series itself, we move to the bottom, where the list of chapters appear.
In each chapter, on the right, we see an arrow icon pointing down. It is the one of the content download . If we want to download an episode, press on the icon and the download will start.
Below is a message that the download is taking place . It will take more or less depending on the duration of the content and the connection.
Once completed, we will see that the icon has changed to the silhouette of a mobile with a blue check. It means that it has been downloaded and we will be able to see it offline at any time from this same screen.
There is also an option to go directly to the downloaded contents and view them in list form. To do this, go to the main menu and select My downloads .
