Are you a Netflix enthusiast who loves watching movies and TV shows on your Mac? Have you ever wished to download your favorite content from Netflix onto your Mac so that you can enjoy them offline?

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of downloading Netflix movies on your Mac.

Step 1: Install the Netflix App

Before we dive into the downloading process, make sure you have the Netflix app installed on your Mac. If not, head over to the Netflix website and follow the instructions to download and install the app.

Step 2: Sign in to Your Netflix Account

Launch the Netflix app on your Mac and sign in to your account using your credentials. If you don’t have a Netflix account yet, create one by following the on-screen instructions.

Step 3: Choose a Movie or TV Show

Browse through the vast library of movies and TV shows available on Netflix. Once you’ve found something you want to download, click on it to open its details page.


Not all movies and TV shows are available for download due to licensing restrictions. However, most of Netflix’s original content can be downloaded for offline viewing.

Step 4: Start Downloading

To initiate the download, look for the “Download” button or icon associated with the movie or TV show. It is usually represented by a downward-facing arrow. Click on it, and the download will start automatically.


The availability of multiple quality options may vary depending on your subscription plan. Higher quality options may take up more storage space on your Mac.

Step 5: Access Your Downloads

Once the download is complete, you can access your downloaded movies and TV shows by clicking on the “Downloads” tab located at the bottom of the Netflix app window.

Step 6: Enjoy Offline Viewing

You’re all set! Now you can watch your downloaded Netflix content without an internet connection. Simply select the movie or TV show from your downloads and click on the play button to start watching.


  • Downloaded content has an expiration date. It varies depending on licensing agreements and can range from a few days to several weeks.

    Make sure to check the expiration date before planning your offline viewing sessions.

  • You can remove downloaded content from your Mac to free up storage space by clicking on the edit button next to each download in the “Downloads” tab and selecting “Delete Download”.
  • Downloading Netflix movies and TV shows is only available through the Netflix app. Web browsers do not support this feature.

With these simple steps, you can now enjoy your favorite Netflix movies and TV shows offline on your Mac. Happy downloading!
