"Downloads For You" is meant to ensure that there's always something available to watch when there's no internet connection available, with users able to discover new content while offline.

Netflix users can choose how much device space downloaded content can take up, selecting from 1GB, 3GB, or 5GB under the "Downloads" tab once the Downloads For You feature is enabled.

Downloads For You is available on Android devices as of today, and it will soon be available in a testing capacity on iOS devices.

We see you watched Poirot. We think you want to watch the Netflix Original anime about a future dystopian world full of angst ridden teenagers.

That's about how good Netflix recommendations are. No thanks to this feature.

I can see this being abused to automatically download whatever lame movie or show they are trying to push each week.
