There's now a way to download near-unlimited Netflix films on Android devices

We're still embracing the news that you can download films and TV shows from Netflix, but it's about to get a whole lot better.

If you use your Android phone or tablet to access the streaming service, there may be no limit to the number of titles you can save to watch offline.

There's just one key ingredient - you need a device that uses a microSD card.

According to Mashable, certain devices with microSD support will allow users to download direct to their SD card, meaning you can save as many titles as your storage allows.

To ensure your app begins downloading to SD, you'll need to hit the menu button and then go to App Settings > Download Location, and change the setting from 'Internal Storage' to 'SD Card'.

There's a catch, though. Mashable reports that the videos are encoded in a format which ensures they aren't playable on other devices. So much for thinking you can remove the memory card and play them on your computer.

Still, with films such as The Theory of Everything and Fantastic Mr Fox coming to Netflix in February, as well as 'The People vs O.J. Simpson', you'll be able to get good value out of this trick if you've got a suitable Android device.
