    So I decided to give purchasing a show on the aTV a try. I purchased the Hell on Wheels season pass for $25.99 in HD. I expected to be able to download and watch it on my iTunes just as if I had purchased it via iTunes instead of my aTV. But I have come to find out that any Season passes purchased on the aTV are only good for the aTV. WTF???

    This is according to Apple. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3951

    So now if I want to watch it on any other device like my iPad or iPhone or even my computer, I have to repurchase the item. That is some major BS and a little bit of bait and switch i think.

    haahaa, sometimes I can be a ninny. lol

    So, after looking around on apples support site, I found nothing, but decided to poke around iTunes. In the store there was the link to purchases and then my TVShows. What do you know? Hell on Wheels was listed and I was able to download all episodes.

    I do think it should show up on your downloads list in iTunes without searching for it, but at least i was able to download it to iTunes for backup.
