How to Go to a Movie Chapter or Episode on Your iPad

By Jesse Feiler

If you have rented or bought a movie or TV show on your iPad, you have control over playback. You can go to a certain movie chapter or TV episode by following these simple steps.

  1. Tap the Videos app’s icon on the home screen.
  2. Tap the Movies or TV Shows tab.
  3. Tap the title of the movie or TV show you want to watch. Information about the movie or TV show is displayed.
  4. Tap a chapter or episode to play it. You can use the playback tools to go back one chapter or forward one chapter.

If you buy a video using iTunes, sync to download it to your iPad, and then delete it from your iPad, it’s still saved in your iTunes library. You can sync your computer and iPad again to download the video once more at no additional charge. Remember, however, that rented movies are gone with the wind when you delete them.

The iPad has much smaller storage capacity than your typical computer, so downloading lots of TV shows or movies can fill its storage area quickly. If you don’t want to view an item you’ve downloaded again, delete it to free up space. With your TV Shows or Movies displayed, tap Edit. Tap the Delete button on an item and then tap Delete in the confirmation that appears.
