Buy TV episodes from the iTunes Store individually or with a Season Pass

You can purchase your favorite TV shows by the episode, or buy a Season Pass or Multi-Pass to automatically get episodes as they're released.

You can buy TV shows from the iTunes Store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch; in iTunes on your Mac or PC; or in the iTunes TV shows app for Apple TV. TV shows aren’t available in all countries or regions—learn what you can buy

  • On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Open the iTunes Store app1, then tap TV Shows .
  • On your Mac or PC: Open iTunes, select TV Shows  from the media options in the upper-left corner, and then click Store at the top of the iTunes window.
  • On your Apple TV: Open the iTunes TV Shows app.

Choose how you want to buy TV episodes

There are four ways to get TV shows through the iTunes Store:

Single episode
Purchase available TV episodes individually. You can download or stream the episode immediately after you complete your purchase.

Season
Purchase all available episodes from a completed season. You can download or stream all available episodes immediately after you complete your purchase. If you've purchased one or more episodes from a Season, you can complete your season at any time.

Season Pass
Purchase all current and future episodes of a season and download them to your library or play them immediately.2 When a new episode becomes available, you'll get an email letting you know that you can download it. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you'll also receive a push notification. If you've purchased one or more episodes from a Season, you can complete your Season Pass at any time.

Multi-Pass
Purchase a set number of episodes of a show that doesn't air in traditional seasons.2 The latest episode downloads immediately after you complete your purchase, and the rest of your allotted purchased episodes download as soon as they become available.

If you purchase a completed season, you'll generally pay less than if you buy each episode individually. If you purchase a Season Pass, you'll always receive a discount off the total of eligible episodes.

2. Season Pass and Multi-Pass might not be available for all shows, or available to users in every country or region.
