    How does the iPad handle a Season Pass or a preordered movie release from the iTunes Store? If there's a way to download the latest available episode on a Season Pass using the iPhone, I haven't found it. So I use iTunes on the Mac, and it automatically downloads any new episodes that are waiting. Then I sync to the iPhone.

    Is it the same process for the iPad, or is there a way to check for available downloads within the store app on the iPad without using the Mac? I ask because I plan on being away for a while with just the iPad, and it would be nice to download any new episodes that are released while I'm away.

    Thanks.

    I wasn't able to download mine. Unfortunately the iPad is not designed to be a standalone device. You will need an iTunes computer to do many things. This looks to be one of them... :(

    I found the whole season pass thing to be a pain in the butt, but it may be that I'm doing something wrong. In my case I've purchased Season 2 of The Walking Dead, which is already complete. My iPad wants to download the whole season and I just want to bring down and episode or two at a time. I wish there was a way for it to stay "in the cloud" until I needed it.

    There is no way to fit a full season on my 32GB iPad. That, and it just doesn't make sense. Heck, I don't even want the full season sitting on my home computer in itunes!

    Anyone have better luck with TV show download management?

    Considering my season pass was to The Walking Dead...

    Seriously though, this thread may be old but the problem still exists!
