View Full Version : Tell Apple TV to play multiple episodes of a show?

Nov 6, 2011, 08:30 PM
Sometimes, for some shows, Apple TV will start a new episode when the prior one ends, but usually it doesn't.

Is there a setting in the Apple TV (2nd gen) or is it in iTunes?

I've been trying to figure out how to do this as well. So far, I haven't found any settings in iTunes that would change the way episodes play currently, but I have found a couple of cheater shortcuts that make it possible to watch episodes back to back.

Option 1: Make a playlist of the TV show and make sure the playlist is set to repeat.

Option 2: Each time an episode hits the credits, hit "next" on your remote, and the next episode will play just fine.

Hope these helped.

Props to Obsidian, Playlists are the best option I have found. I'll use the remote app on my iOS device and shuffle through a few.
