Neflix Places Limits on Downloads

When Netflix finally allowed downloads for offline viewing, many of us rejoiced. Now it seems that they have imposed a limit of how many times you can download a particular media file. While they claim they aren't the ones setting the limit, it is important to know that you can only download the same movie about 4-5 times within a year. Those details are pretty fuzzy, but it seems that their is a limit and it could easily catch you by surprise.

Currently, all content downloaded from Netflix has an expiration date. After a certain amount of time, you have to "refresh" the download. Caching a video always counts as a download whether you're downloading on a new device or just refreshing an existing download. After a few downloads, some episodes and movies will pop up a warning that explains you can only download them one more time before a particular date (probably a year from the first download).
