T.V Episodes on Ipad

Hello,

I have the iPad 3 16GB and from my understanding, if you don't have all the storage available for the entire season, it won't install. How could I get around this without having a MacBook or a PC nearby? Is it possible to download each individual episode from a season?

Can't you just delete episodes?

where are you getting the episodes from?

Sometimes just a small bit of data management goes a long way. Choose to sync only the 3 oldest/newest episodes, etc. You dont have to have EVERY episode on there as Im sure you dont have time to watch them all at once.

Are you talking about episodes from iTunes?

If so, I do that all the time. You may just have to setup the iPad to "Manually manage music and videos" on the Summary page in iTunes. Then just drag the episodes, not the seasons, you want for now to the iPad.

Note that changing the setting could change what other things, like music, auto sync to the iPad.

Sorry, I forgot to mention from iTunes. And I would not keep the entire season on the iPad, since it won't fit most likely in HD. What setting would I change exactly?

From the Summary tab in iTunes when your iPad is plugged in there's a setting to "Manually Manage Music and Videos". All this does is allow you to drag and drop music/videos to your iPad without having to select them from the appropriate sync tab. Since you mentioned about not having a PC near by, this won't help you at all.

I suggest just swiping each episode as you have watched it and deleting it from your iPad and yes, it's possible to download individual episodes from iTunes on your iPad. You are not required to download an entire season.

That's only an issue if you are buying a full season pass directly on the iPad.

otherwise you can select the episodes you want, both for downloading and syncing
