Netflix Smart Downloads: No more managing download lists

Lots of people these days use Netflix's download feature. Now Smart Downloads has been activated, so you don't have to worry about anything from now on.

Smart Downloads is currently only available for smartphones and tablets running Android. It is unclear when this feature will make it to iOS. But this shouldn't take long.

Connection to the WLAN is mandatory

In order to be able to use Smart Downloads, you have to be connected to the WLAN. But you can get around that by changing a setting.

But how does this feature work now? If you have finished watching an episode of a downloaded series, it is automatically deleted without you having to worry about anything. A new episode in the series will automatically download when it becomes available.

In order to see which episode is being downloaded and when, you will receive a notification with each download process. So you don't have to manage download lists from now on.
