Netflix’s Next Best Thing is Here!

Gelo Lasin

As weary commuters, one of the things that help keep us sane is watching our favorite movies and TV shows on Netflix. Even if we’re offline or trying to conserve mobile data, we can still binge watch in public through Downloads. But as we go about our busy lives, sometimes we forget to download the next episode in our series, leaving us bored as we endure the traffic on EDSA or the while waiting in line for the next P2P bus.

Enter Netflix’s Smart Downloads. Now, when you finish watching a downloaded episode, Smart Downloads will delete it, and then automatically download the next episode when you’re connected to WiFi. This way you won’t be left without your favorite series whenever and wherever you leave the house.

Try out the Smart Downloads feature with these commute-friendly (with episode time no longer than 30 mins!) and binge-worthy titles:


Frustrated with her thankless office job, Retsuko the Red Panda copes with her daily struggles by belting out death metal karaoke after work.


This enlightening series from Vox digs into a wide range of topics such as the rise of cryptocurrency, why diets fail, and the wild world of K-pop.

BoJack Horseman

1990s sitcom star BoJack Horseman is now a has-been with no love life and a permanent house guest. Then he gets a book deal — and a cute ghostwriter.

Netflix Smart Downloads are available on Android mobile devices. Find out more about the feature here.
