A new option in both the iOS and Mac/PC version of iTunes will allow a user to purchase some types of large content and then download it at a later time.

According to Apple, the option is available for TV seasons, season passes, movie bundles, music box sets, individual movies, and TV episodes.

Devices running iTunes 11 or iOS 6 will see the option to complete the download later. The option is only available in countries that support iTunes in the Cloud. The complete list of countries can be found here.

I’m glad to see Apple add an option like this to iTunes. There have been more than a few times that I’ve wanted to purchase a video or TV show, but a spotty Wi-Fi connection or cell data service prevented me from completing the transaction.
