If your copy of Apple's iTunes software won't play TV shows, the cause of this problem is simple--you're not running the latest version of iTunes. Only iTunes version 9 and newer has the ability to play television shows purchased from Apple's iTunes digital media store. So long as your computer is connected to the Internet, you can download and install the latest version of iTunes and get your TV shows up and running in no time.
