FlixGrab by FreeGrabApp product reviews

FreeGrabApp Team proudly presents the new FlixGrab application! FlixGrab is a unique and powerful application for downloading content from your NetFlix subscription, including serials, TV shows, documentaries, movies and music, using the fastest multistream FreeGrabApp application engine. With this application, you can download and watch any NetFlix video offline on any device without spending internet traffic, and without disrupting NetFlix limitations! It is the same as 'offline mode' on other popular streaming apps.

FreeGrabApp, as a company, highly respects the copyright terms, but at the same time, they consider unacceptable any limitations on downloading already-purchased or free video content for personal use, which is established by Netflix and other video services. Therefore, using this program is totally legal only for personal needs and FreeGrabApp does not advocate or support the sharing of downloaded material to third parties.

The downloading process is quite simple. Users need to add URL by copy-&-pasting it from the Netflix window, then clicking the download button. Premium licence owners can also choose the audio and video quality prior to downloading.

Let's be honest, online streamed content is the way of things now. Broadcast TV using radio frequencies is a dying medium, with the bandwidth available on fibre and wifi - and the prolific increase in "free wifi" offerings from businesses trying to get you to stay even 5 minutes, and one more coffee, longer - meaning you are never far from an access point. But one of the things that not all streaming services are willing to offer you is the ability to access and enjoy their content when you are out of reach of a signal, and those that do usually encrypt the streamed data so you can ONLY play it through their app.

For songs, that's not a big thing - they are often small files, and music on the go is handy for things like road-trips, mowing the lawns, or at the family get-together on the beach. But... what about catching up on your favourite TV series when the sun goes down? Netflix is one of the services that offer nothing in the way of offline viewing, and that's not good enough any more. Enter, FlixGrab from FreeGrabApp.

It is made very clear that this app is not offered to allow you to grab content and share it around - they respect Netflix's right to make money by offering you a service, but they also rebel against the restriction that you are only allowed to access it if you are online. Sure, you still need to be online to grab it, but one you have Flixgrabbed the entire season and saved the episodes to your device/s, you can watch them anywhere as long as your device has the juice to run. Perfect for those camping trips where, after the kids are snoring away in their tents, Mum & Dad can sneak away to a quiet spot and indulge themselves in the latest episodes of their favourite NSFK show.

I had a play with the free version, which limits you to grabbing the lowest quality video and audios streams only, and throttles the download speed to a snail's pace, and it was good... but after getting the Premium licence - it was an affordable gamble for a year of testing and only bumps up the effective cost of your Netflix subscription by less than 1 month's worth - I was hooked. With Premium, I was able to grab the highest resolution video and top-quality audio streams, and at a speed that was faster than actually watching it on the platform too! If I were to factor in the time spent reading the credits and watching the intro as well as the time to switch to the next episode, it would have taken me about 8.5 hours to watch all 10 episodes of a particular series I like, but I was able to load all the URLs into the app, set them to download up to four episodes at the same time, and it took just over 2 hours to get them all, allowing me to watch them as I saw fit.

"So, now you have a full hard drive and you've seen them all... why bother?" Simple, Because I like to rewatch some shows weeks, months or even years later, and Netflix doesn't always keep shows on their active roster forever. A great example was the Star Wars movies. There for a short while, then gone. Naturally, this happens for many reasons - contracts expire, studios merge and conflicts arise, or just the sheer money-madness that plagues the entertainment industry. For whatever reasons, that movie/show you love may vanish without warning, so having copies on your device is a backup plan FTW.

Overall, I was really impressed, and will look to renew the licence. One small thing, of course, is the technological war between companies like Netflix - who want to retain their irn grip on the content so it can't be grabbed and shared - and companies like FreeGrabApp who are trying to stand up for the consumers who pay good money for the content and get irate when it gets removed without notice. For a little while, the Flixgrab app was being successfully blocked by a tweak in Netflix's streaming system, however that barrier was addressed, analysed and overcome so things are working better than before. Also, the app interface has had a great new make-over giving it a sleek, professional appearance.
