How to remove a downloaded movie or TV episode from Netflix

Whether you’ve already watched downloaded titles or simply want to make room for other things, you’ll eventually want to get rid of them. There are two ways you can remove downloaded titles. 

  1. Deleting a single title – If you only want to delete a single title at a time, you can do so via the My Downloads section.

    – Open the Nextflix app. 
    – Tap the menu button(hamburger icon) in the upper-left corner.
    – Tap on the title if you’re looking to delete select episodes of a show.
    – Tap Edit.
    – Tap the delete button (looks like an ‘x’) next to the items you want to remove.

  2. Deleting all titles –  If you’re looking to clear everything all at once, there’s an easier way. Go to Settings, then simply click on Delete All Downloads.
