Downloading TV Shows from the iTunes Store

TV shows are available from the iTunes Store, as well, and you get to them pretty much the same way you get to movies—click on the iTunes Store link on the left side of iTunes, then click on the TV Shows link at the top of the Store homepage (like with the Movies link, you can click to the right of it for a menu of TV show genres). There are loads of TV shows to buy here—you just click on the show you want, which takes you to an info page where you can watch a 30-second preview, or buy it and download it to your computer, and then to your iPod, if you want. There are also a ton of absolutely free episodes—just look for the Free TV Episodes button on the main TV Shows page. If you decide to buy a TV show, you can choose individual episodes or a Season Pass, so you get the entire season—once an episode airs, it will automatically be added to your Downloads queue, so you can download it when you’re ready to watch it (just click the Buy Season Pass button). Some shows don’t have a regular season, like E!’s The Soup or some specialized news shows, so those shows use a Multi-Pass instead, where you get a set number of shows for one price.
