Once your download is complete, it will be on the Netflix app under queued. From there, you will be able to watch all of the downloads you want. This can be great for when you’re at home, or maybe out in the yard wanting outside time but still staying tune to your favorite episode.
Do the downloads expire?
After you download all of your favorite shows, they will expire after a certain length of time. Netflix will tell you when the episode or movie will expire. It usually happens after 7 days unless a title states otherwise. Not all titles will be available to download, and some might expire earlier than 7 days due to licensing restrictions.

Some downloads may expire 48 hours after you start watching the movie or show. It depends on what the title says. The great news about this is that it frees up space for more downloads. You will not have to go through one by one to free up space on your own.
