Part 3. How to watch Netflix titles after your profile is deleted?

If you have a profile with Netflix ad-free plans, you can use the Netflix app to download movies and TV shows to specific devices. The Standard ad-free plan allows download on 2 supported devices at a time, while the Premium plan allows downloads on 6 supported devices simultaneously.

However, if your profile is deleted, all associated data, such as recommendations, viewing history, downloaded content, and other activities will be inaccessible as well. To continue enjoying your favorite Netflix content even after your profile is deleted, you can take advantage of Pazu Netflix Video Downloader. This tool allows you to download Netflix movies and TV shows for offline viewing on any compatible device, even with an ad-supported membership.

Pazu Netflix Video Downloader is a desktop program for Netflix users to download movies and TV shows directly, without requiring the Netflix app. It effectively bypasses the DRM protection from Netflix, allowing you to download content in MP4 and MKV formats. The converted files maintain high quality, up to 1080p, and retain the original subtitles and audio tracks. Additionally, it removes all Netflix download limitations, such as expiration issues and device restrictions. This means you can easily transfer and watch the downloaded files on any compatible device of your choice.
