The other day, I took a look at the TV shows inside the Videos app on my iPad. The only TV shows I've watched have been on my iMac, so this was a first time. What I saw was a listing of 11 shows, including the one and only tv series I purchased through iTunes. However, I never synced any TV shows with my iPad. I clicked on the purchased series and I see both season 1 & 2 with a little cloud & down arrow next to each title. I clicked on one and it seemed to begin to play, but it only played for a second or 2 before it stopped. I did this repeated;y, but it played only a second or 2 as well. I then synced iPad and downloaded 2 of the purchased tv shows. Now the ipad shows these 2 shows w/o andy clouds. So my first question: are all purchased tv shows/movies available via my iCloud? If so, why would it not play?
Question 2: there are a bunch of other tv shows in my video app that must be suggestions from iTunes, but I am not interested in any of them. Editing does not bring up an X in black circle. How do I get rid of them?
QUOTE Thanks

Yes. But they need to download first, which is why they won't play at first.

Not suggestions no. Can you post a screenshot?

All those are in the cloud (except homeland) they aren't 'on' your device.

If you don't want them to display you can go to Settings - iTunes & App Store and turn videos off under 'Show All'
