Download next episode automatically

For help managing downloaded TV shows, use Smart Downloads. When you finish watching a downloaded episode, Smart Downloads deletes it and automatically downloads the next episode in the series.

If there are no more episodes to download in a series, the last watched episode will not be deleted.

To turn Smart Downloads on or off:

  1. Open the Netflix app and tap Downloads .

    • On a Windows 10 device, open the Netflix app and select Menu , then My Downloads.

  2. At the top of the screen, select Smart Downloads.

  3. Use the switch to turn Smart Downloads on or off.

The Smart Downloads feature:

  • Is available on devices supporting downloads running the latest version of the Netflix app.

  • Works when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so your cellular data won't be used.

  • Will not impact your device storage beyond what you've already downloaded.

If the next episode didn't download, make sure:

  • Smart Downloads is turned on.

  • Your device is connected to Wi-Fi.

  • There is another episode in the series.
