The "slide & delete" option is n/a because iTunes says this TV show was a "Failed download". However, 3.5 GB of my phone space is still being occupied by "Other" (Video).


For some awful reason, the iTunes program on my laptop will not let me right-click delete the TV show out of my TV Shows Library either. I cannot sync my iPhone with new music and organize it because all this space is being taken up. I'm so frustrated I could cry.

iPhone 4 (8GB), iOS 5.1

    I suspect the only way to fix this is to backup the device and then restore it. I have a failed podcast that I too can't remove but in my case the space is negligble.

    You're right. Once I backed up my information & restored my iPhone, the space cleared (although when I connected to iTunes it tried to download the episodes again. Thank you so much! (:

    I downloaded - what I thought was a full length tv show - it was a short trailer that I could not seem to remove.


    I tried through my iphone 4s (iOS 6.1), through itunes and looked for numerous blogs and "help sites" but to know avail...it was still there.


    When I would try the "slide and delete" method - that was not my option - all I could do was "hide" it. I did not just want to unselect it from iphone - I wanted it gone. it was zero use to me.



    Give this a try... it sure seems to have rid both itunes and my iphone of this little pest...


    Settings - general - usage (wait til all the apps load) - and then select what you want to delete (videos/tv shows - I don't remember what it was called) and DELETE!!!!


    I have synced since then and it does not show on itunes or iphone still - YIPPEE!!


    Hope this helps...
