Netflix introduced a download feature in its iOS and Android apps. The feature lets users download select content to their phone or tablet, and it helps minimize data consumption on a cellular plan. Netflix users can download content when a WiFi connection is available and watch it when they are offline. This same feature is now available on the Netflix app for Windows 10. The Netflix app is only available through the Windows Store, which means this feature is for Windows 8 and Windows 10 users.
Here’s how you can download Netflix content on Windows:
