iOS TV App File Size


#1

Hi experts! I have several purchased movies in my default iOS “TV” app. I’d like to download some for offline viewing for some upcoming flights. When I click the “download cloud” on the movie everything works as expected, but it downloads the full size, 3+ GB file. I’m only planning to watch this on my phone, so I’d be in much better shape if I could download a smaller, quicker file at lower quality.

I know I can change the quality of streaming video in the TV app settings, but is there a way to change the quality of downloaded video?

Thank you!!

I think you’d have to erase the download, change the quality in TV settings to SD, and then download again.

Unfortunately this still downloads at full quality. As of now it seems download quality is based on the version I originally purchased.
