How to Download Netflix Movies and TV Shows on Mac OS X Easily?

Is there an option for downloading Netflix TV shows and Movies to MacBook? Just something similar to the iPhone or iPad Netflix download option, because it is amazing to download Netflix TV shows and Movies to the MacBook hard drive and take the laptop everywhere to watch the videos offline.

Yes, there is a Netflix app available for iPad or iPhone, so you can download Netflix TV shows and movies to iPad or iPhone easily for offline watching, however, if you want to download Netflix videos to Mac, it is not so easy. Why we cannot download Netflix videos on Mac OS X and how to get around this limitation on Mac? You may have tried some video screen record software to record the Netflix video screen, but only to find that these recorders only record the audio with the black screen. Or you have tried to Airplay the Netflix downloads from iPad or iPhone to Mac before, but now Netflix's note says that AirPlay is "no longer supported" due to the "technical limitations".

Why there is no download option for Mac?

Now that Netflix allows the TV shows and movies to be downloaded on iOS devices to watch offline, why is this not an option for the Mac OS X? To our knowledge that the Netflix download feature only works in Netflix apps, not the browser, and unfortunately, there is no Netflix app for Mac, that is to say, Mac users can only access Netflix videos by using the browser, no way to download the Netflix videos on Mac. For the purpose to protect the offline downloaded contents from piracy on the browser, or for security reasons, downloading Netflix contents to Mac via browsers is hard to achieve. What’s more, we are also not sure for what reason, there is still no Netflix app available right now for Mac to allow the download feature.

Even then, there are ways to help you download Netflix TV shows or movies to Mac OS X.

Netflix offers a Netflix app for Windows computers, and the user can download it from the Microsoft Store, and if you have Windows 10 laptop, you can use the Netflix app to download stuff for offline watching, because any Windows 10 computer can install apps built on the UWP (Universal Windows Platform). So if you want to download Netflix content on Mac, you can use the Boot Camp to run Windows 10 OS on your Mac, and then, you can download the Netflix app for Windows and start to download videos from Netflix.

To be honest, Boot Camp is not the ideal way to download Netflix movies and TV shows on macOS, but it seems that this is the only way at present. Fortunately, now thanks to the specialized Netflix Video Downloader, you guys are able to download Netflix movies and TV shows on Mac effortlessly.
