As we already know, HughesNet Gen5 offers customers a Bonus Zone, which is a period of time from 2am-8am, when all customers have access to 50 GB/month of additional plan data! All HughesNet Gen5 plans come with additional plan data during the Bonus Zone. With this additional plan data, you can download large files like movies, system updates for your computer, tablet, or smartphone, and more.
Now Netflix allows you to download certain movies and shows, so you can watch them offline later. This is a really helpful feature to take advantage of the Bonus Zone from HughesNet Gen5.
Remember you need to have a Netflix subscription active. You can download titles using the Netflix app that is available for Android, iOS and Windows 10 for PCs. If you have the app already installed in your device, make sure you have the latest version as the previous versions of the app didn't have this feature available.
Netflix also allows you to pick the quality for your downloads, it can be in standard DVD or High Definition. In standard definition, movies and shows are downloaded faster and use less data and space in your device, whereas High takes a bit more space and patience. To change the video quality, go to App Settings. From there, under the Downloads heading, click or tap Video Quality and select your preferred quality.
Also if you are planning to download on your smartphone device, make sure the option "Wi-Fi only" is turned on, to avoid use your cellphone data plan.
As we explained not all shows or movies are available to download, you can easily go to the menu and tap on "Available for Download" and it will show you all the titles you can download.
Note: On smartphones, you can only download to the same storage the app is installed. If you would like to use an SD card as storage for your movies and shows from Netflix, you need to reinstall the app in the SD card.
To download a movie just click on the arrow icon and it will start downloading. Shows need to be downloaded by chapters. Once downloaded, all Netflix content will appear in the My Downloads section, which can be found by selecting the menu button. To play an episode, simply click or tap the video thumbnail. Deletion is available in case you would like to free some space from your device after watching your favorite shows offline.
