A handy Netflix feature announced last summer has come to iOS at long last: the app can automatically download episodes of your favorite shows. To do this, select the Menu icon and then "App Settings".
You finish watching Season 1, Episode 1. Then under the "Downloads" heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. For example, suppose you have already downloaded the first three episodes. In this way, the new episode is always ready for you and you don't have to save videos for your next commute. The feature is also useful for those on limited data plans.
While connected to the Wi-Fi, the opt-in feature now works on Android, Windows 10 ond iOS devices.
The company says that this feature will improve the viewing experience for the users by making it easier for them to take their favourite Netflix shows and movies with them. This is an automatic download feature, sort of removing the manual behavior of the download feature for some content available on the platform.

UEFA to launch its own streaming service: Ceferin
UEFA says it will launch its own streaming service to broadcast soccer games to more fans worldwide. Ceferin says "a leader without doubts is a delusional and risky leader".
This update comes after the feature was first rolled out to Netflix for Android in July previous year.
Netflix has recently been focusing heavily on offline access to its app to further expand its user base as the USA market saturates.
However, that task will now be automated thanks to the arrival of Smart Downloads on iOS. Late past year, the streaming firm started testing a mobile-only subscription which will apparently be more affordable. The feature also makes sure that storage isn't used up because a new episode loads only once the just watched episode is deleted from the device. Today, the company has rolled it out for iOS users.
"The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favorite stories, the better", said Netflix.
