How to disable Automatic Downloads of TV shows in iTunes?

    Does anyone know of a way to prevent iTunes from automatically downloading new episodes of TV shows?

    Every time I open iTunes it does this and it’s for a show I don’t want and it does it on all my machines! ugh. Any ideas?

    This should be solvable by going into iTunes > Preferences > Store and unchecking “Download pre-orders when available”

    You *might* also need to uncheck “Always check for available downloads,” as well.

    Yes! That seems to have done the trick!
    Thank you!
