Is it possible to choose the priority source for content when you stream shows through the TV App? For example, say that I subscribe to Hulu, but I’ve also purchased Bob’s Burgers via iTunes and have downloaded all the episodes to my iPad’s local storage.

It seems that my Apple TV box and iPad will still stream from Hulu rather than from iTunes or my local storage. The iPad will play from local storage if I start from there, but if I watch a few more episodes on my TV and come back to the iPad and continue watching from the “Watch Now” tab it just starts streaming. Is there any way around this?

Not if you are using the TV app, unfortunately.
