Netflix Smart Downloads makes it easier to manage you downloaded TV shows

Netflix has announced a new ' Smart Downloads' feature that will automatically delete episodes you've already watched and download new episodes for viewing. "Today, downloads is a manual process - you have to download [TV episodes] one at a time, then delete them".

For now, Smart Downloads is only available on Android phones and tablets.

Starbucks to phase out single-use plastic straws for sippy cups, alternatives
The new versions will also be available with other drinks upon request for those who prefer or need to use straws. On July 1, Seattle became the first US city to ban plastic straws, spoons, forks and knives.


"You watch, we do the work", summed up the post, which is attributed to Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation. But as competitors like Amazon Prime Video began offering downloads, and as Netflix itself expanded internationally to markets where mobile connectivity wasn't as reliable as in the US, Netflix relented.

Binge-watching your favorite shows on Netflix is about to become a little bit more convenient. Today, the streaming service is improving upon this capability by introducing smart downloads.

The NATO summit is likely to be dominated by Trump's insistence that member nations step up and pay more for their joint defence. Separately, doubts about Trump's commitment to European security have pushed EU leaders to boost defense cooperation.

Netflix wants to start keeping your downloads fresh for you. If you don't like Smart Downloads, you can turn it off from the Settings menu as well. He went on to explain that you can still download movies and TV shows over mobile data, but this would need to be done manually by the user. This means it can automatically download the first episode of the next season once users have finished watching the season finale. The download takes place only when a known Wi-Fi network is within reach, and Netflix will not use more storage, as it merely swaps out the old episode for the new one.
