Here is how Smart Downloads works: Once users have finished watching a downloaded episode, Netflix will delete it and download the next available episode for a title.

Smart downloading only works for users who have a Wi-Fi connection and can be turned on and off.  

"We know how annoying it can be to go through all your apps and delete files you no longer need. We also understand that when it comes to Netflix, the faster you can get to the next episode you want to watch, the better," says the team at Netflix.

Netflix says that giving consumers more control over their entertainment experience is at the heart of everything it does, and members can choose when they want to use Smart Downloads. Smart Downloads is available on Android phones and tablets.
