    Have they downloaded to your knowledge? If it's a recent series and has not yet finished airing in your country, then they may not have been released onto the iTunes store yet.

    Series finished June 2011, the last two episodes are showing in the usage section of settings,but can't find a way of getting them to play, have tried deleating and downloading again, same as before.

    I will leave it open for suggestions at this point. Not having downloaded tv series before myself. If anything comes to mind, I'll jump in.

    When you open usage it tells you what is there, apps etc and it says the series name, open it and there are three of them one watched and the last two. But can't find a way to open them, have tried double single click and it won't open?? many thanks for your thoughts

    I didn't think you could open apps or files from there, unless I'm missing something. I am assuming that they do not appear in the Video app, which is where they should be, hence you looking deeper into the Usage.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I've never downloaded a series either but it might be an idea to follow these steps and see if this fixes it.

    Close your apps completely - When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly....see if you can now view them if not a restart is the next step

    Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating. A reset is the next step, this will not change anything on your iPad and is akin to rebooting a PC.

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.

    Please do not post twice on your issues, as well as dividing any info given it is also against Forum Rules, I have now deleted your other post.

    I've moved your thread to our Help Section where you will receive a better response.
