    Hi,

    I had a question regarding iCloud. I am considering purchasing some TV shows on iTunes. My question is what happens if the hard drive containing the purchased data crashes, do I just download the files from iCloud onto a new hard drive or could I stream directly from the Cloud?

    You can use iTunes in the Cloud to re-download your previous purchases. You can only stream this content through an AppleTV, everything else (computer, iOS device) will have to re-download it before it can be played back.

    Thanks, that's very helpful information, especially for streaming on Apple TV which will indeed in handy. :)
