Tech Columnist Chris Smith says that Netflix for Android just got a new feature iPhone owners will never see
Netflix for Android has just gotten a lot better thanks to one simple feature addition. And this particular new feature marks a rare occasion, because it’s nowhere to be found in the iPhone version of Netflix’s app. In fact, this is the type of feature the iPhone will surely never get.

A Netflix rep told Engadget that you can download content to multiple SD cards. “However, there are limits to how many simultaneous downloads a member can download at one time, along with limits on how long a download will remain accessible,” the person said. “This ensures that the feature is being used for its intended purpose.”
Also of note, the downloaded shows can only be played on the device they were originally downloaded to, a move that’s likely meant to prevent piracy. Just update your Netflix app to the latest version to take advantage of this new feature.
