How to store Netflix downloads on an SD card
Download Netflix TV shows and movies to SD card
- 3 months ago
Netflix is the most popular streaming service that offers a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, anime, documentaries, and more. Netflix offers 3 plans: Standard with ads( $6.99 /month), Standard( $15.49 /month) and Premium( $19.99 /month). The differences are video quality and number of devices you can watch on at the same time and have downloads on.
Netflix allows you to download TV shows and movies from the Netflix app on iOS, Android, Windows and Amazon Fire tablet so you can watch them offline. However, only Android or Amazon Fire device supports downloading TV shows and movies to SD card .
Option 1. Download Netflix videos to SD card directly on your Android or Amazon Fire device
You can store downloaded TV shows and movies to an installed SD card on your Android or Amazon Fire device. To use Netflix's external storage feature, users only need to select "Download Location" in the Netflix App to move movies in offline viewing mode to the MicroSD, and then they can catch up with the show anytime and anywhere regardless of the Internet speed.
- Open the Netflix app and tap More or your profile icon .
- Select App Settings.
- Under Downloads, select Download Location.
- Select where you would like to store your downloads.
This will change the storage location of future downloads. TV shows and movies you have already downloaded will remain where they are.
This could provide users with an interesting new way to consume their video content. In theory, it could allow users to download far more TV show episodes and movies than they otherwise would, and build up a huge catalog of offline videos. However, there is a limit to the number of simultaneous downloads a member can make at one time (up to 100 active downloads per device), as well as a limit on how long a download will remain accessible. This ensures that the feature is used for its intended purpose. In addition, users will not be able to share the SD card between multiple devices, as the content on the card can only be played on the device from which it was originally downloaded. Downloads will expire after a period of time , and some have a limit on how many times they can be downloaded per year. Some titles will expire 48 hours after you first press play. Titles that are no longer available on Netflix will expire when they leave the service, regardless of when they were downloaded.
To get rid of above download limitations, the best way is to download Netflix TV shows and movies to MP4 on Mac or Windows with Pazu Netflix Video Downloader and then transfer to SD card.
As iPhone doesn't support SD card, if you want to download many Netflix TV shows and movies to watch offline, you can download them to MP4 with Pazu Netflix Video Downloader and them watch them with your MP4 player.
Option 2. Download Netflix TV shows and movies to MP4 and then move to SD card
Theoretically, Android phones can support MicroSD cards of up to 512 GB or even 1 T, which can hold about 1600 episodes for a one-hour series, which can store almost all mainstream series. However, if you download Netflix titles from Netflix app, you can only have up to 100 active downloads at a time per device. By downloading Netflix TV shows and movies to MP4 with Pazu Netflix Video Downloader, you can download as many episodes as you like and then transfer them to SD card.
Since iPadOS and iOS 13, Apple has finally added much-requested support for external storage connectivity on iPhone and iPad. Now you can connect a USB drive or an SD card reader to the charging port on your iPhone using a compatible connector or adapter. You can use the Files app and other supported apps to access files stored on these external devices. However, Netflix doesn't add the feature to download content to SD card on iOS devices.
