Why Download Netflix Videos via Netflix Video Downloader?

The download feature of the Netflix App is a helpful function for Netflix members to enjoy the videos offline. However, there are several limitations applied by Netflix for members to play videos offline. The most significant one is members can only watch the downloaded videos in the App. Therefore, you are limited to watch the downloaded videos within the specific device that already downloaded the videos. You also can not transfer the downloaded videos to other devices since they are not saved in the common video format like MP4 and MKV. It is not convenient for members who would like to transfer the videos to other devices and continue watching Netflix videos.

Secondly, Netflix states that some videos are unavailable for download. Members can only watch those videos online; there is no download option for offline playback. Meanwhile, Netflix also limited the number of titles you can download for offline playback to 100 titles for each profile (device). This means you can only download videos on one specific device if you subscribe to the Basic plan and download videos with up to 4 devices for Netflix Premium subscription members. Besides, members are required to log in with their account to access the downloaded videos, otherwise, you cannot have access to the downloaded videos.

Furthermore, the downloaded Netflix videos have geographical restrictions. When you travel abroad, you may face the issue that the downloaded Netflix videos cannot be played. The reason is the video is unavailable in the local region, and you will have access to them again when you go back home. However, it is annoying sometimes for members going for a long-term trip that the downloaded videos will be expired on certain days. In this case, you are unable to watch those TV shows or movies before you go back home.

Those are the main limitations and troubles you may have with Netflix. Therefore, we are here to introduce the professional Netflix Video Downloader for you to get rid of those limitations. In the meantime, you will not lose access to any downloaded Netflix videos even you cancel your Netflix plan.
