Buying HD gets you SD & HD

I just decided to buy the new The Office season 4.

I paid the HD price yadayadayada. I just noticed that it's downloading every episode twice, once in the HD and once in the SD.

I'm guessing the SD is for the iPods and stuff, but this also means 2GB per episode.

What do you think?

how would every episode take up 2 gigs, normally a SD 45min TV show takes up 500mb. And im guessing that an HD episode would be around double that. Plus cant you put only the SD edpisodes on the ipod?

Yeah the iPods can only play the SD, but the HD and SD are separate files. Combined they take around 1.5GB-2GB of space on your computer.
