I have a pretty full internal hard drive, so I'd like to know how big a TV season download will be before I purchase it in the iTunes store. Following the purchase, I'm planning to move it to a USB hard drive.

You can check download sizes easily for movies (shows up as something like "1.60 GB" under the buy button), but I don't see anything similar on the TV season page. Am I overlooking something?

I have iTunes 9.0.3, the newest version at the moment.

have you tried checking download sizes for each episode in the season? –  quack quixote Feb 7 '10 at 18:02
    
Yep, and no info was provided. I just went ahead and started downloading after I figured I'd have enough space on the external drive and could move them over as they downloaded. For other's reference, each ~45 minute episode at 640x480 was around 550 MB a piece. 26 episodes * 550 MB = around 14.5 GB. –  Benjamin Oakes Feb 7 '10 at 18:17
    
feel free to post that as an answer below. you can't accept an answer to your own question immediately (wait a couple of days), but finding your own answers and sharing them is very much encouraged here. –  quack quixote Feb 7 '10 at 19:56
    
I'd posted it as a comment because it didn't really seem like a "real" answer, but will do. –  Benjamin Oakes Feb 8 '10 at 14:11
