Part 1: Watch Netflix on iPod directly

Netflix, just like many other video sites, has released some official applications for Apple iOS devices including iPods. In this way, you can directly watch Netflix on your iPod touch with ease.

And to have Netflix fun on your iPod, you are required to have Internet connection on your iPod and have subscribed to Netflix so you can watch Netflix movies and TV shows anywhere and anytime. As for iPod, you can:

  1. Turn on your iPod;
  2. Connect iPod to the Internet via Wi-Fi or 3G;
  3. Open App Store on the iPod home screen;
  4. Find the Netflix app and download it;
  5. Launch Netflix app and log in it with your Netflix account. If you aren’t a subscriber of Netflix, join it. You can join in Netflix on your computer or iPod by opening the Netflix official site via Safari or subscribe it directly in the Netflix app;
  6. Search your Netflix movies and rent it. You can’t obtain the Netflix item permanently, so you’d better watch Netflix on your iPod before the dead line.

Part 2: Transfer downloaded Netflix to iPod

If you have downloaded some Netflix movies via your video downloader on your Mac – Netflix doesn’t provide video downloading service, you can transfer them to your iPod for entertainment on the move. And before the Netflix to iPod transfer, you need to make sure:

  2. The resolution, bit rate and more are proper when playing on the iPod.
  3. The downloads are without DRM protection.

If the downloaded Netflix videos are DRM-free but in incompatible video formats, or improper video resolution, bit rate and more, you can use iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac for help.
