Imagine it is Sunday morning, you are free, no work, nothing to do. So how will you spend the time? Well if I were in place in of you, I would go and grab a cup coffee and sit back to enjoy some movies or games. Talking about movies what could be a better a place than Netflix to stream your favorite movies and TV shows. Well, Amazon Prime Videos can be an option but their library is still small when compared to Netflix’s. Moreover, the in-house shows of Netflix make it even better. Now, as you have chosen what to do, you grab a cup of coffee and something to eat and finally sit to watch something on Netflix. But wait! your internet connection is not really capable to stream content at 4K or Ultra HD *rage face towards your ISP*.
So, What should you do? Reduce the resolution and then stream the content. But no! you are determined to watch it at the highest resolution available (for which you have chosen a higher priced plan as well). So, what to do now? Well, the only option is to Download movies from Netflix on your device first and then watch it. This option can be helpful in a few scenarios like
- If you have a slow internet connection to stream movies and TV shows and possibly you also hate buffering. Meh!
