Question about downloading movies/TV Shows on iTunes...?

  1. If you purchase a movie or TV show, can you download it over the course of a few days? If you downloaded a part of it, paused the download, and turned off your computer, could you resume the download again another day, without completely restarting it? I know you can do this with audio podcasts (not sure about video podcasts), so can you also do it with movies and TV shows?

  1. The following is from Apple Support...

    I paid for items that didn't download completely.

    Most times, your download will restart the next time you open iTunes, even after a power outage. To see if you have any pending downloads, select Check for Available Downloads under the Store menu in iTunes 8 (or Check for Purchases under the Store menu in iTunes 7). If your download doesn't resume, please report the problem through your Purchase History.

    To report a problem with your download:

    1. Locate the item in your Purchase History
    2. Click the "Report a Problem" link
    3. Select "I didn't receive this item"
    4. Enter a description of the issue that you're experiencing in the comments field and hit Submit

    Our support agents will review your request and get back to you as quickly as possible.

    I guess you can try to power it off manually and then restart it from where you last left off, but I would get in contact with Apple first to make sure.
