This article particularly aims at making you understand why some of your favorite series and movies on Netflix are not available for download. At the end of this article, you will definitely understand the reason behind such bad news. Just read on.
What is Netflix?
I hope you won’t get bored with this very question since it’s very irrelevant to a good number of people, this question is truly irrelevant especially to those who are lovers of TV series & shows, as well as those using Netflix for a long while. However, for the sake of that mate who just got introduced to Series and shows then wants to create an account with Netflix, let’s make things more clear and interesting.
Netflix is actually known to be the most visited video streaming site in the world at the moment (February, 2021) and it looks set to maintain it’s position at the top for a very long while. New movies and series are uploaded to the site frequently to give the viewers something new at all times.
The Subscription aspect of Netflix
Streaming videos on Netflix is not free, monthly subscriptions are required to be able to access their services (Movies and Series). Once subsribed, you can watch and download videos to your preferred device easily.
After subscribing to a plan on Netflix, you can stream videos online and download them if you wish. Total unlimited access to tv series and movies is guaranteed after subscription, but only if you have internet connection. Downloading videos is therefore, a way of making them available for you even when you have no data to stream online.
But then I can’t see the download option
After subscribing to a plan, getting prober internet and falling in love with series, you failed to see the option to download it. Here is why; Some of Netflix’s content which includes movies and TV shows are produced in partnership with a studio, this Studio therefore owns the franchise or intellectual property associated with the content. While Netflix may have the rights to offer such content for online streaming, they may not be able to offer them for download.
