The new "Smart Downloads" setup, announced today in a blog post, will automatically delete episodes that are viewed and then download the next episode once you are connected to WiFi.

Sadly there's still no one-stop option to download an entire season of a show, so if you're stocking up on episodes for a long flight, or a trip out somewhere with poor mobile coverage, you'll still need to do it manually.

Boris Johnson's resignation a selfish act, says Guto Bebb
May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign. Top Brexiteer Michael Gove, an ally of Mr Davis , Mr Johnson and also Mrs May, said everybody was "in very good spirits".

After updating compatible devices with the new feature, Netflix will automatically delete your downloaded shows after you have finished watching them.

Netflix is figuring out how to make TV work on your smartphone, where downloading a TV show can mean less room for selfies or devour your data plan. Unfortunately, it's unclear if it's also making its way to iPhones and iPads, but we asked the company and will let you know once we find out. Said Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.

Boris Johnson resigns throwing May government into chaos over Brexit
Jeremy Hunt, who has replaced Mr Johnson as foreign secretary, said he would be "four square" behind her. Hunt, who had been the health secretary, is considered one of May's most loyal ministers.

The app for both iOS and Android, however, is absolutely free, and you can grab it from the links below. Smart Downloads will notify you when the feature starts downloading an episode, and you can even turn it off if you aren't a fan. For the time being, Smart Downloads is only available on Wi-Fi in order to allow the user to keep control over their mobile data usage from the app.

For now, the feature is limited to TV shows. It's important to remember that the feature isn't adding a massive function; it's simply automating a process that is now manual, and will only suit a section of the user base.

Now the actor has shared a second video which teases what has been reported to be a new series for Showtime . Other than Trump, Baron Cohen could also be targeting other celebrities.

The feature is flawless for those who love binge watching TV shows, don't want to burn through their data allowance, and certainly do not like the process of going through the download process manually.
