While I agree with the above responses, it may simply be that the o.p. want to watch on a plane or similar situation. In that case, your best bet may be to buy the flick using the Blockbuster app.... I think that one pre-downloads, though I could be wrong.

What they're saying is downloading content for offline use is exactly why netflix was hesitant to come to android. In order to get licenses for streaming, netflix has to do what they can to prevent downloading/pirating/whatever you want to call it.
My suggestion would be to download DVD Catalyst and rip a dvd to you computer and then put the file on your phone.

No. Everything on Netflix is completely legal... So there is no way you can download it to your Sdcard or your computer hard drive. But you may find some apps lurking around on the Market that may let you download movies onto your phone. Google has already removed quite a lot of these apps from the Market but there may still be some live ones there. Yes it amounts to piracy but it is the same as making a mix tape or making a copy of your CD or DVD or downloading files from limewire..... As long as you don't overdo it or you just use it for yourself (not for commercial purposes) I don't think the feds will come after you but you can never be sure.

It would even be worth an extra cost to do so.Sprint Galaxy S3 - rooted but still stock for now.

The studios aren't going to allow that without some major DRM overhauls or a Netflix rental system overhaul to lock things down to a 24 hour viewing window or something. In other words, it's probably not a can of worms that Netflix wants to open when the existing streaming model is growing exponentially (money would be better spend on more servers, content licensing, app development, device penetration, etc).
Just rip a DVD from your library for your flight and put it on the phone. Or pay for your flight's wireless and watch all the Netflix you want (assuming your flight has wireless).

Re: Record movies from netflix?
Yes after getting my Android when I am on a road trip Netflix is just eating my Data bytes like a glutton about 2 Gb for a 2 hours movie...
So if I was able to download/archive/whatever to be able to watch the movie on the trip it will be great!!!
