How to download the 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.
