    Forgive me if this has been asked before - it seems like a pretty basic question but I can't find the answer anywhere. I've already purchased a few TV shows through the Apple TV since they added the option to do so, but I can't figure out how to get them into iTunes. They're not coming up when I click "Check for available downloads," and the "Store" tab under Preferences says nothing about automatically downloading TV show episodes. Has anyone figured this one out yet?

    The O.C.
    Yeah, its not very intuitive.
    1. Make sure iTunes is up to date (v10.4.1 or later).
    2. Open iTunes and Click on the iTunes Store tab.
    3. Sign-in to the iTunes Store using the Apple ID you used to make your iCloud purchase.
    4. On the right of the homepage, in the "Quick Links" panel, Click the "Purchased" link to open the "Purchased" area of the iTunes Store.
    5. From there, you can navigate to the item you wish to download.

    I hope this helps.

    Sorry for the late reply, but thank you very much - that's exactly what I was looking for. They definitely don't make it very intuitive! Hopefully it'll get a little cleaned up once iCloud makes its debut. Automatic downloads would be sweet.

    THANK YOU for posting this! I was having the hardest time trying to figure out how to get my content into iTunes on my own local storage.
