How to Watch Your Favorite Shows on the Go

With the holiday season in full swing, many folks will be traveling, spending time with family, and consuming large quantities of delicious treats over the next month. One of the benefits of all that down time is a chance to catch up with all the great recent shows and movies on Amazon & Netflix. There are few things better than curling up with a bowl of popcorn and binge watching a full season of Stranger Things™ on Netflix while the snow’s falling outside. Or watching Jeremy Clarkson rant and rave as he roars a million dollar car around a track.  A question that comes up often this time of year is “Can I download movies or shows from Netflix?”

For those of us that want to watch our movies and shows on the go, but don’t want to burn through cell data (videos consume a lot of data quick) or struggle to find usable WiFi (free airport WiFi can sometimes be slow and hard to connect to) Amazon and Netflix both provide the ability to download movies and shows and watch them later. Perfect if you want to binge-watch offline. Here’s how:


Note: Be sure to update your Netflix app to version 4.12 or later before attempting the following instructions.

  1. Open up your favorite series and tap the download button.
  2. Give your download a chance to finish.
  3. Watch at your leisure!


  1. Open up your favorite series and tap the download button.
  2. Wait until the download is complete.
  3. Watch whenever you want!

We hope you have a great holiday season and get a chance to catch up on your favorite shows to boot!

  1. Plex has the ability to offline sync from the server too. 😀 And you can set it to sync X episodes at a time from a show.

  2. What app do you use for amazon? I have amazon prime app and don’t see where I can download or watch a show I know where I can add one to mu watch list but not where I can watch it.
