iTunes content, how to handle?
Can anyone help educate me with a brief idiot's guide to buying content from iTunes? I haven't done it before because I get my music on CD still, but there's a TV series on there I'd like to buy. I'm cautious because I know that Apple love to tie you down to specific areas and restrict the flow of media, and the only Apple product I own is my iPhone.
I've read up on HomeSharing etc, but am still a bit confused by it all.
If I bought the series through iTunes on my phone, I wouldn't be able to store it there due to capacity, so would I therefore be better off buying it through the laptop? what if the rest of my household wanted to access and watch episodes independently of me. I know for music, Apple doesn't play nicely with NASs, so I'm guessing the same is true for TV content?
Can I purchase content on the phone but leave it in the cloud for me and others in my house to stream, or do I need to download it, and if so, what's the best methodology for making sure others in my house can watch too?
Would an Apple TV be a good option here?
I'm sure this is rank simplicity itself, so apologies for my ignorance.
