Apple Now Lets You Download Movies And TV Shows From iTunes Later

Apple has added a small but notable option to the iTunes Store. You can now choose to download movies and TV shows later. When you make a purchase, a new dialog box asks if you want to download the media now, or store it in your purchases list.

While the feature itself isn’t anything new—you’ve been able to download previously purchased items for awhile—the option to postpone a download until later is something Apple just added.

Macworld first noticed the change. It applies to iTunes 11 and iOS 6 devices. Larger media files don’t have to be immediately downloaded when you make a purchase. Movies, TV shows, season passes, and music box sets can all be pulled from iTunes in the Cloud later.

This feature should be quite handy for making purchases on a connection with limited bandwidth.
