See Managing Smart Downloads from Netflix's Help Center
If you’ve downloaded one or more episodes in a series, Smart Downloads will delete the episode you've just finished and automatically download the next episode in the series.
The Smart Downloads feature only turns on when you're connected to WiFi, but if you're not connected to a usable WiFi connection the phone may rely on a cellular data connection. For example "open WiFi networks" that require authentication wouldn't give Netflix an Internet connection.
