Download a show or movie

If you subscribe to Apple TV+ or an Apple TV channel, you can download TV shows and movies included with your subscription on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.

  1. Open the Apple TV app on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac.
  2. Go to the channel's page. Or search for a movie or TV show.
  3. Tap or click the download button  next to the TV show or movie.

To find and play your downloads, go to the Library tab, then tap or click Downloaded.

You can't download content from the Apple TV app on Apple TV, smart TVs, streaming devices and on tv.apple.com.

Limits for downloads

For most Apple TV channels, downloads are available for up to 30 days before they expire. For a few channels, downloads may expire earlier.

Some Apple TV channels may have limits for how many titles can be downloaded simultaneously and the number of devices you can download content on. If you reach the limit, the Apple TV app will alert you. You’ll need to delete previously downloaded TV episodes or movies on one of your (or your family's) devices before you can download anything else from that channel.

Limits for streaming on multiple devices

  • Apple TV+: One subscription allows you to enjoy 6 simultaneous streams. If you have an Apple Music student subscription, which includes Apple TV+ for a limited time, you can only stream Apple TV+ on one device at a time.
  • Apple TV channels: One subscription allows you to enjoy up to 3 simultaneous streams. Some channels might allow more than 3 simultaneous streams.
