Hide and unhide music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and books

Use iTunes on a Mac or PC to hide and unhide your purchased items.

Hiding your purchases hides them from all devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID and from the members of your Family Sharing group. If you download a song, album, movie, TV show, or book on another device, hiding the purchase won't delete it from that device.
