Turn a Movie Into a TV Show – Mac Kung Fu, 2nd Edition

Tip 36Turn a Movie Into a TV Show

If you’ve manually downloaded an episode of a TV show and imported it into iTunes, you might find that iTunes thinks it’s a movie and files it away under the Movies heading.

If you want it to be correctly filed under the TV Shows heading, select it in the Movies listing and hit Command+I. In the dialog box that appears, click the Options tab and select TV Show from the Media Kind drop-down list. You might optionally want to select the Video tab and fill in details of the show, such as its episode and season number.

Once you click OK in the dialog box, the file will jump into the TV Shows listing, where it’ll show as an unwatched show waiting to be viewed.

Multiple files can be selected at once and their Media Kind altered in this way.
