The wonderful thing about having a Netflix account and the Netflix app is that you do not need an internet connection to watch Netflix. That means should your airplane have no airplane Wi-Fi you can still watch Netflix. No more boredom possible!

All you need to do to access offline viewing is make sure you have the Netflix app and then download Netflix content whilst you still have an internet connection. Watching movies offline has never been easier!

How to download Netflix content using the Netflix app

Download a movie to you Android phone for example

So you want to download Netflix movies for your next flight but you aren’t sure how to? Netflix has made it very easy to download movies and TV shows, you can even do it whilst you are packing for your flight!

On a laptop

To download TV shows and movies onto a laptop you will need to have the latest version of the Netflix app. This is free to download from the Microsoft store but you will need a subscription to be able to download content to the app.

Once you have the app the process is easy:

  1. Select the TV show or movie and look for the download icon. Not all content is available to be downloaded

  2. Or you can select ‘menu’ and then select ‘available for download’

  3. Browse the TV shows and movies you are interested in

  4. Once you’ve chosen, select the downloads icon

  5. You will now be able to find the available episode in your download section

  6. Simply click the content to watch offline. Don’t forget to wear headphones and put your laptop into airplane mode if you are watching downloaded TV shows and movies on your next flight!

  7. If you want to delete the download as you need more storage space click the download icon and select ‘delete download’.

On a mobile device or tablet

To watch Netflix movies offline on your mobile device or tablet you follow much the same process:

  1. Open the Netflix app

  2. Choose the TV show or movies you want to watch and tap for details

  3. Tap download on the download button and, depending on the speed of the Wi-Fi your content will be stored on your phone quickly.

  4. To tell if TV shows or movies have been downloaded to the app check the download icon. When this has changed from a downwards arrow to a blue phone shape then the content is downloaded to your mobile device.

  5. You can also click the ‘select downloads’ link and you will see all the shows and movies available for you to watch offline.

  6. Don’t forget to watch Netflix in airplane mode when you are flying.

How many Netflix movies and TV shows can you download?

Are you worried you won’t be able to download enough content for your flight? A Netflix account lets you have 100 active downloads at one time per device. That is content enough for several flights!

The number of devices you have access to depends on your membership plan.

Can you watch Netflix whilst travelling?

You are able to access Netflix whilst travelling, even if you are travelling abroad. As long as you have an internet connection or have downloaded Netflix content earlier you will still be able to watch content on Netflix.

However, the selection of TV shows and movies does vary depending on where you are. So it may be that you cannot access specific shows or movies that you might want to watch, and you may not be able to access your continue watching titles. But equally, you will likely be able to watch TV shows from the country you are visiting!

Whilst offline viewing is still available wherever you go, content downloaded onto your Netflix app might not be available in the country or region that you are in. This varies from show to show!

How much does Netflix cost?

Different membership plans

Netflix offers a variety of membership plans:

  • The basic membership costs $9.99 per month and lets you watch on one screen at a time on one device.

  • The standard membership costs $15.49 per month and lets two users watch simultaneously on two devices. HD is also available.

  • The premium membership costs $19.99 per month and lets four users watch simultaneously on four different devices. Ultra HD is available.

How can you save money on a Netflix account?

Really want a Netflix account but it costs just a little too much? Why not share a Netflix account?

You can share a Netflix Premium account between four people meaning you pay only a quarter of the price of the account, so roughly $4.99 per month. That is the same price as a cup of coffee for a month’s worth of online content!

But account sharing can be a hassle and involve lots of chasing up to make sure your friends pay you on time. But not when you use Together Price!
