Netflix download feature soon

Hi, do you already know that netflix is planning an download feature? Just heard about it. That would be great!

Does someone know more about this? Do you think I would be able to expand my movie collection on my hard drive with this new offline function?

Re: Netflix download feature soon

If I had to guess, and that's all this is but a guess, is that you'll have to use the Netflix app on whatever device you are using. Since almost all video streaming players have virtually no storage for downloaded media, it may only be possible to download it on a computer, and play it back on the same computer.

Samsung NU7100 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents

Re: Netflix download feature soon

Hi, the netflix downloads will probably be available by the end of the year, but read yourself: http://time.com/money/4381615/netflix-v ... e-viewing/.
Please do not confuse! An offline service doesn't mean that you're downloading movies or tv shows. You are just able to watch them without wi-fi in a certain period of time, but still on the platform of the service via app. If you want to own the movies you have to pay for each individual film or uniwue for a video streaming recorder: http://record-streaming.com/en/netflix.
