Netflix Debuts

Now they've just launched Smart Downloads which means that when you finish watching a downloaded episode, Smart Downloads will delete it and then automatically download the next episode.

The ability to download movies and TV shows straight from Netflix mobile app is a very handy feature. When the Netflix app detects that an episode of a TV show has been watched, it will download a new episode and delete the old episode only when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi connection.

Netflix's Smart Downloads will initially only be available on Android smartphones and tablets. Unfortunately, it's unclear if it's also making its way to iPhones and iPads, but we asked the company and will let you know once we find out. "Whenever possible we want Netflix to do the work for you". "Furthermore, if you don't have space and data constraints, you can always turn Smart Downloads off and download on Netflix the regular way", said Mr Johnson.

Really good news for people that watch Netflix while travelling.

.

Smart downloads are one-for-one.

If you do use it it's activated when you connect to wifi and are finished with an episode.

Smart Downloads deletes Season 1, Episode 1, and automatically downloads Season 1, Episode 4.

It's limited to episodic TV series, not movies, standup specials or other kinds of programming.

Netflix is rolling out a new feature for Android devices called Smart Downloads, which will change the way downloads are handled on compatible devices.

The feature is ideal for those who love binge watching TV shows, don't want to burn through their data allowance, and certainly do not like the process of going through the download process manually.
