How to save Netflix shows to microSD card

Download even more shows and films for those long journeys

Netflix recently announced news, to much excitement, that users would be able to download films and shows to watch offline. The streaming giant made the statement in a surprise press release, and it's enjoyed huge success.

One problem users have encountered is that they can only store so much content on their smartphones and tablets, with many struggling to find space for an entire series. Thankfully, Netflix has a solution.

microSD card storage for Netflix

If you’re an Android user, and you’ve downloaded the most recent version of the Netflix app, you’ll be able to store series’ and films on your microSD card, as well as your device’s internal storage.

Offline content does still expire after a certain amount of time, so you won’t be able to keep it forever, but if you’re looking to binge an entire series on a long-haul flight, for example, it’s now possible. This is how you do it…

  • Open the Netflix app, and head to the menu button – top left
  • App Settings
  • Download location
  • SD card
  • Find shows to download, and enjoy

How much space do you need?

Some Android smartphones can take larger microSD cards than others. Some can accept a card of up 256GB capacity, which is absolutely loads of room. But realistically, what you’d need to store your favourite series is something around 8GB. Check out our SanDisk range as a good starting point.
