Lenovo Tab Netflix offline viewing/download - Lenovo response required

2017-05-05, 9:38 AM

Hi

 

I am starting this post in order to gather support for enabling this feature on Lenovo tablets (I own the Yoga Tab 3 Pro). From what I see a few people have contacted Lenovo & Netflix and the word seems to be that Lenovo needs to release an update to allow feature to be enabled to download content using the existing Netflix app.

 

I think as customers we deserve a reponse on whether there is a plan to switch on this feature and if not then why. I work in digital product management and Lenovo will know what is in their roadmap.

 

Customers who would like this feature please reply so that Lenovo can see the demand for this feature (hopefully I'm not the only one).

Please Lenovo respond to your many customers with some news.

 

Thanks

K

Thank you Kayvee, for starting this post. To be honest, I would have wanted to know if this feature for watching offline Netflix content was available before I bought my Yoga Book. It's not a major deal breaker, but one of the reasons why I bought a larger tablet was to watch media.

 

Please roll out some update for this.

After the February update you can simply download the 5.01 Netflix apk on apk mirror. Install it fresh not as an update and downloads will be enabled. I have it working just fine!! Hope that helps ya!!

Just tried this and it didn't work for me. Have you got a Yoga Tab 3 Pro? Netflix are saying it's something which Lenovo need to update.

Tried this too -- but I'm using a Lenovo Yoga Book (Android) and while I could now download media from Netflix, I couldn't watch anything via streaming. Had to do a factory reset to get it out of the system -- uninstalling and reinstalling didn't do the trick.

 

Hopefully Lenovo comes up with a solution for this soon.

I have a Lenovo YOGABOOK ANDROID... recent NETFLIX app update is not allowing to open the App for watching. The offline watch never worked also. Now due to this problem, ended up downloading the older version from NETFLIX website. Overall the tech support from NETFLIX as well as lenovo are crappy..I am very much disappointed with this stupid tablet for which I paid 500 bucks..I could have gone for regular tablet than this stupid YB1-X90F.

Any solution for this yet? I've just got an Android Yoga Book & applied all the system updates.

I've downloaded Netflix 5.31 from APK Mirror (the Play Store was giving me a 4.x Netflix version), ensured it has storage permissions, and I still don't get download icons.

Under Netflix > About > Download, I get the message:

This device does not meet the security requirements for the download feature. (OF.NA.6)

I bought the tablet primarily as a travel mobile entertainment device with a bit of sketching thrown in, & this is a bit of a showstopper. Fortunately I've still got 10 days to return it, but I do quite like it other thann this annoyance.

For me it's the same!

Netflix is now using some google securits thing to validate the device is secure. It seems lenovo was not able to get certified...

 

not good! :(

Could anyone that did the Upgrade to Android 7 tell me if the Netflix download is working now?
I just bought my Yoga Book yesterday and Netflix / Amazon Offline content was one of the main reasons I bought it...

Did not think there would be an issue with the app actually..:/
