Netflix: how to manage mobile phones that can download video

The executive explains how the technology works, taking as an example a subscriber who drives daily: The person is on the bus and would need to manage it manually. But after watching an episode, the next time it is on Wi-Fi, the smartphone removes the episode and downloads the next one. If the viewer watches three episodes, the official app downloads three more.

Netflix says that the smart download tool works exclusively on the Wi-Fi network. Even if the user has a large 4G franchise, it still has no option of enabling the download via mobile network.
