My downloaded title says 'Expired.'

Once you download a title to your device, you will have a limited amount of time to watch it before it expires. The amount of time depends on individual licenses, and can vary by title. Titles that are expiring from your device in less than 7 days will display the amount of time you have left on the My Downloads page of the Netflix app.

Some titles will expire 48 hours after you first press play. Once you have started playing one of these titles, you will see how many hours you have left on the My Downloads page. You can watch a downloaded title as many times as you’d like before it expires.

If a title has expired, you will need to renew it. Some titles may only be renewed a certain number of times.
