    I'm not aware of any way to do that. Why not just let them download, then delete them?

    That's what I've done with some apps.

    Because some of those tv shows can be quite large. I had to suck it up and do this for all 9 HD episodes of a season I chose to download ONLY on SD. for some reason it decided to download HD as well and I had to wait and download all 9, 1.4 gig episodes.

    If I didn't have the bandwidth or the space I would have had a bit of a problem.

    Yep, if you purchase HD TV shows via iTunes it will download both the HD and SD versions.

    As a point of interest, if you purchase movies and TV shows via Apple TV, iTunes does not download them. They remain available in the cloud for viewing and downloading per item.
