Streaming entertainment website, Netflix has now announced that they will be doing what rival YouTube has been allowing for long — offline videos. Yes, Netflix will now be allowing its users to download videos for watching offline. The feature is a hit with YouTube since not all users get the privilege of high-speed and cheap internet/data connection. So the best practice is to download the movie/video when using a public Wi-Fi or a home internet Wi-Fi where the internet connection is relatively cheaper.

Netflix has also announced that they will allow users to download the movies to their local storage or SD cards. The feature is not a new addition — Netflix had enabled this feature earlier; however, the download was only restricted to the internal storage, and you could not download it to the external storage or SD card. With puny storage options provided by smartphone companies, a 16GB or 32GB storage smartphone is almost filled with the user’s music list and photos. Using an SC card is the only option to store large-sized data and videos.


Now that Netflix has enabled the option to download to SD card, users will be able to download watch their videos later. However, if you are using the Netflix app, you will have to head to the settings and enable the option for external storage as the default location for downloading the streaming movie is on the internal storage. Do note: The movies may be downloadable, but they cannot be transferred to any other storage as they will not function as a regular MP4 or MKV format movie or video file.
