How to download next episode automatically

To download the next episode of a TV series automatically, use Smart Downloads (called Download Next Episode on Android devices). When you finish watching a downloaded episode, it will be deleted and the next episode in the series will be automatically downloaded for you.

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

To turn Smart Downloads/Download Next Episode 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 on or off.

This 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.

  • Won't affect your device storage beyond what you've already downloaded.

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

  • Smart Downloads/Download Next Episode is turned on.

  • Your device is connected to Wi-Fi.

  • There is another episode in the series.
