Can you download a movie from Netflix?

Wouldn't it be cool if you could just select the Netflix movie or show you want to watch and then download it to your iPad or tablet so you can watch it in the car, on the plane or train - or whenever you don't have WiFi?

We think so too!

While Netflix does not allow you to download their content from their servers, you can use technology similar to your cable DVR to record a Netflix show and then download that recording to your iPad, iPhone, Android Device, or PC - and voila! It's called an SVR or Streaming Video Recorder - and it is one of the features of PlayOn Plus. And it is perfectly legal - just like your cable DVR is.

Your PC works as the "cable box" and makes the recording from the Netflix website. Now it's an MP4 file - which you can put on your iPad via iTunes or transfer to your Android device via Windows Explorer. But - it isn't technical or hard to do - PlayOn Plus gives you a simple, intuitive PC app to do it all. And it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. For only $2.50/month, you can have unlimited Netflix recordings on your iPad...think of all the money you'll save on data fees + iTunes purchases.
