When enabled, the Netflix app will automatically download the next episode in your preferred show while connected to WiFi, replacing the most recent watched episode with it. The feature won't have a major impact on device storage as it deletes the last watched episode before downloading the next one.

Netflix has unveiled a new feature today that will help you better manage your downloaded TV series. The feature has allowed it to better serve its users in Latin America and Asia where the younger audience simply prefers to download content on their device so that they can view it later on.

Smart downloads are one-for-one. The feature is triggered when you download an episode or two of a TV show that you're now watching.
