    SMB, thanks for the feedback!   My latest Mythbusters episode was also ready-to-watch when I checked my iTunes today.  This is great!  Now I just hope that Apple keeps things working this way.   If they do bring back the check for available downloads, though, I have a script for that too.

    A new thing I've noticed that I find rather annoying... I just went to the page for a show I have a season pass for, and the latest episode is there for $2.99.  However, I cannot yet download it from my purchased tab, nor have I received any email telling me it's available, because... to me, it's not.

     

    Seriously? Why are we, as season pass holders, having to wait longer to get episodes than those who haven't purchased it yet? At they very least we should get them at the same time, if not sooner.

    interestingly a few shows have started working again in check for available downloads.

     

    Mad Men and Warehouse 13 both downloaded but defiance did not show up and had to be manually downloaded.

  • GadgetJohn Level 1 Level 1

    I've seen similar. Falling Skies had to be manually downloaded yesterday while Warehouse 13 and Defiance downloaded automatically today. This is nuts... (especially since Defiance didn't work for you but it did for me).

  • AbsolutGrndZer0 Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah, so far now all my shows have been automatically downloading... in fact I ended up having to delete double copies last week because I was so quick to manually start the downloads... so this week both my shows (only have two currently active shows now) Defiance and Switched at Birth both downloaded without me having to do anything other than open iTunes, so looks like its... on the way to being fixed, they very well might have listened to us!!! Score!

    Hi,...

     

    I've had this problem for many months, even after email stating a new download is avaliable, the "Check for avaliable downloads" always says all purchases have been downloaded, and i must manually go to each show in iTunes and click the "$x.xx"-button; even for shows with purchased season passes.

     

    I prefer to purchase shows and movies over cable-TV, but this is pretty annoying (and seems to be a long-running problem).

     

    Any news from Apple regarding this?

    Well, it seems to be working fine again for me, as I said above.  Even now it still is.  I am however actually a PC user, was just posting in this thread because this issue affected both Mac and PC users, but now it seems they fixed it for PC users, but not Mac users?   If so that's pretty cray cray.

    I don't see this changing. The way Apple has designed the system is that when a show is available, it should show up in your iTunes Library with a download arrow next to it. You can, at that point, either download the show or double-click it and watch it streaming instead. You can then either download the show or if it's a show that you don't want to see in your Library or keep, "hide" the show by deleting it from your Library.

     

    Unless I've missed some announcement from Apple, they still haven't said that you can now stream a show or movie on a computer, in addition to iPads, iPhones and Apple TVs, but you can.

     

    The email you get (if you do) when a show is available will now go directly to downloading the episode of the show you've purchased. I see "Check For Available Downloads" going away in a future release of iTunes.

    Just so you guys know, I've been having this problem for quite a few months, and, only today I read the so many posts here (thanks y'all), tried everything, nothing worked!

     

    Any news from Apple regarding this? Or from you?

  • sjbtax Level 1 Level 1

    Has something changed since this script?

     

    I have tried the script and created the message rule. The rule is working fine as I have added to move it to another folder after running the script and this works but nothing happens and the available downloads are not picked up.
