So I’m just putting this out there in the ether. Because if one person reads it and is helped, I’ve done my good deed for the day.
I upgraded to the new iTunes 8 a week or so ago. And after I did, trying to download free episodes from the iTunes store stopped working completely. I’d always get “Not Available” and it would be grayed out. And it did this whether I tried to download the HD version or the standard definition version.
Flummoxed, I did some searching and found the answer: switch your store settings to One-Click instead of Add to Shopping Cart in preferences and it’ll download the episode every time. Once you grab what you need, just switch back to the shopping cart.
Oh, and after downloading all the free episodes I was curious about, I think my new favorite TV show is Life. How did I miss this one? Brilliant.
