Can I use my iPhone as a DVR for Netflix?

Episode 1356 (1:47:57)

Terri from Acton, CA
Apple iPhone

Terri got satellite internet and she used up her peak time cap watching TV. Leo says that the problem with satellite TV is that it has very limited bandwidth and as such, it can limit the amount of bandwidth she'll use. Is there a way she can download Netflix programs to do it?

Leo says that Netflix does offer the ability to download programming, but only to the phone. It's much easier on the desktop, because she can use Kodi (formerly XBox Media Center), Plex, and PlayOn, which all can do it. Creating a DVR with an iPhone is a bit of a challenge, though.
