    How do I tell iTunes 12 that I want to download TV shows in 720p instead of 1080p? Right now, it has a checkbox for HD video in the Preferences > Store pane but it says 1080p will be downloaded instead of 720p. For the sake of file size and my TV resolution, I only want the 720p versions.

    In the Downloads section of Preferences, uncheck 'Download full-size HD videos' and that should download 720p videos for you. You can check by going to a movie in the Store and in the Information section it will tell you which version will download.

    Ahh, I get it now. The checkbox confused me - I thought that meant it would only download SD. Now I understand how it works. Thanks!
