Netflix today announced the launch of a new Smart Downloads feature that’s designed to streamline the process of downloading content for offline viewing.
With Smart Downloads, when you finish viewing an episode of a TV show that you’ve downloaded, Netflix will delete it and then automatically download the next episode. Smart Downloads is designed to download content only when you’re connected to Wi-Fi so it’s not using your cellular data plan.
Netflix users can choose to use or disable the Smart Downloads feature, which is available on iOS and Androids devices. Turning off Smart Downloads will keep watched content on your device.
On iPhone and iPad, you can tap the Downloads icon, choose "My Downloads" and select "Smart Downloads" to toggle it on or off.
