Download Netflix Movies?

Looking to download some Netflix should ever be off grid. Onto an iPad. Seems a no go. Have app installed but there is no own arrow/download option. Watch with data/wifi, no problem. Tried random sampling of several movies and not there. Verify those same movies on the desk PC and it’s there. Every tutorial says tap the download icon, but that is not present. Stumped. Deleted and reinstalled the app, no difference.

Ideas? TIA.

How old is the iPad? If it's older, you will not necessarily be running the latest versions of apps.
 
Which movie are you trying to download? Not all Netflix movies are downloadable. Also your Netflix subscription limits the number of devices that can have downloaded movies on it, the number depends on your subscription.

iPad with latest iOS. “Your software is up to date.” Not one single offering is available for download. Delete, again and reload the app. No luck. Try with the phone and bingo, option is there. But watching a downloaded movie on iPad is a no go. FML.

I’m just here to ask/show my age.

Netflix allows you to download movies to your device and ply them when not connected to the internet?

I assume this is hat the OP wants.

Have you ever been able to download to this device? What is the version of your Netflix app?

How old is the ipad? I have an old one that says the ios is up to date, but that is because the device is so old it is no longer supported.

13.6 is the latest version of the Netflix app for iOS, so he's close to being current. Did you try calling Netflix?

Check for a “downloads” button in the bottom tool bar. From that button, you can search for content they permit for downloads. As someone else mentioned, they don’t permit downloads for all shows/movies.

There is not a download option, anywhere for any option... zero. I picked a movie on phone that offers download option —good— then checked same movie on iPad and, nope, not there.
