If you are wondering how you can access TV shows on your iDevices ( iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV) which were previously purchased, then this can be easily done now. Both on iTunes on Mac and Windows, but only if you are in the U.S. This is now possible because Apple, as a part of iCloud beta will let you re-download all your TV shows both from iOS and iTunes, and Apple TV users can stream them as well.

Here is how you do your re-download and streaming of your previously purchased TV shows.

From iTunes: Under the quick links section of the iTunes Store click on Purchased link. Now click on the new TV shows. This will let you see all the purchases that you have ever done. iTunes version required is 10.4.

From iPhone and iPod Touch: Tap on the iTunes app. Once the app is launched, tap the Purchased button and then tap the TV shows button. This will again show you a list of shows you have purchased. To re-download any item, tap on the cloud download button. Also, taping All TV Episodes will make it easy to see the TV shows by each episode.

From iPad: The procedure is the same as in the iPhone and the iPod Touch, only differing in where the respective buttons are placed. The software version required for iOS devices is 4.3.3.

Apple TV: For you to be able to re-download previously purchased items on Apple TV, the device should be running on the software version 4.3. You can update the software to 4.3 by choosing Menu, General and then Update Software. Once updated, you will now find a Purchased button under TV Shows. From here you will be able access all your previously downloaded TV shows and watch them directly. TV Shows purchased from Apple TV can also be accessed on the other devices.

Note that if the previously purchased items are no longer available in the iTunes Store, then these cannot be re-downloaded.
