    The other day I purchased the Season Pass for South Park season 10. On the page it says "This Season Pass includes all current and future episodes of South Park, Season 10. Current episodes will download immediately and future episodes will download as they become available." So I purchase it and the first episode (which is all that was there at the time) downloads. A few days later I noticed that there was another episode available, so I looked to see if it downloaded. It didn't. So I went back to the page figuring I need to download it manually, but the button next to the new episode says "Buy Episode." Does anyone know how this Season Pass is supposed to work? How do I get the new episodes? I'm hoping that it is not some email link or something like that, as the email address that is associated with my iTunes account is no longer functional (it was part of my now defunct .Mac account). Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
    Thanks!

    In iTunes, go to Advanced -> Check For Purchases.

    If that doesn't work, you'll probably need to email iTunes Support.

    Yea for whatever reason, it doesn't automatically download like Apple says it will, so you have to 'check for purchases' whenever a new episode comes out. I got the South Park pass, but the third episode isn't up yet ;(

    You can update that email address through iTunes if you like. The only thing I'm not sure of is if they try to validate with your old email address (it's been a while since I've done it).

    Really? I tried to do so but it wouldn't let me change it. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong place.

    Go to the account section at the iTMS (via the button with your email address). I've done it twice and all my purchases still work fine.
