How to download videos from U-NEXT|How long does the downloaded video have to be viewed?

U-NEXT is a service that provides content via the Internet, launched in July 2007.

By downloading works in advance, U-NEXT allows users to watch videos on the go without worrying about data traffic. But do videos downloaded by U-NEXT have a viewing deadline?

This article will explain in detail about U-NEXT's download service.

What is the expiration date for viewing works downloaded from U-NEXT?

Normal Movies

U-NEXT sets a playback deadline for downloaded works.

For regular works, a maximum of 48 hours of usage time is set, after which the work can no longer be played.

If you are offline and the playback time has expired, you will not be able to play the work until communication is available. Therefore, we recommend that you pay attention to the expiration date of the work and renew it if necessary.

Rental Movies

In addition to unlimited viewing, U-NEXT offers "rental" works that can be viewed with points, and these works can be downloaded.

However, the viewing period for rental titles is 48 hours "after purchase, " so even if you have not downloaded the rental title, you will not be able to watch it once the expiration date has expired.

The difference with unlimited viewing is that "the timing when the 48-hour viewing period starts counting" is different, so please be aware of this difference.

Is there a download limit on U-NEXT?

There is a limit to the number of works that can be downloaded.

Unfortunately, not all works offered on U-NEXT can be downloaded.

Please note that some works are not permitted for download.

To check if a work is available for download, check if the "Download" icon is displayed on the work's detail page.

Downloading is not available on computers.

U-NEXT works can only be downloaded with dedicated iOS or Android-powered applications.

You can also watch videos using a TV or a PC, but you cannot save the works, so you cannot watch them offline.

Therefore, if you wish to watch U-NEXT videos using a computer, you must always be connected to WiFi.

Adult videos cannot be downloaded.

U-NEXT offers unlimited adult video content included in the monthly fee, but please note that adult videos cannot be downloaded.

U-NEXT's download function is available only with a dedicated application, but unfortunately, adult videos are restricted on this application.

Adult videos can only be viewed through the browser, and therefore the download function cannot be used.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change the image quality of a downloaded film?

U-NEXT's download function allows you to choose between "standard quality" and "high quality" picture quality.

To automatically set the desired picture quality, you can do so in advance by following the steps below.

1. Click on the "Three Lines (Menu)" in the upper left corner of the screen.

2. Click on "Settings & Support" and then "Picture Quality Settings".

3. Click "Download" and select either "Standard" or "High Quality.

High Quality" displays images more beautifully, but requires more data transmission.

For example, a one-hour film in "Standard Quality" requires approximately 450 MB of data transmission, whereas a film in "High Quality" requires more than 2 GB (2,000 MB) and takes longer to download.

Can I continue to view downloaded works after I cancel my subscription?

There are two options for canceling U-NEXT: "Cancel" to terminate the monthly plan or "Withdraw" to terminate the U-NEXT membership itself.

In the case of "Cancel," any remaining points will be retained until the expiration date and can continue to be used for downloading. However, If you "cancel" your membership, any remaining points will be forfeited.

Therefore, even if you cancel your subscription, your account is still valid and you can continue to enjoy downloaded works.
