I know that when you buy an HD television series via iTunes, you get both HD and SD versions. When syncing with an iPad, which version is transferred? HD, SD, or both?


The reason I ask is this: I am thinking of purchasing Law & Order: Los Angeles in HD. I don't want to have to spring for an external HD just to back that up, so I figure I'd use my iPad for that purpose - not necessarily to WATCH the show on the iPad, just keep the files there in case my hard drive is ever erased (and then I could get the show off the iPad via Transfer Purchases). So when I sync the iPad with my computer, which version of the show - HD, SD, or both - will be put on the iPad?

iPad, iOS 4.3.2
