If this is exactly what you want, you can follow three different methods offered in this guide to download your favorite TV shows to your device with ease.
Part 1. Download Series on iPhone or Computer with a TV Downloader
As an old saying goes, a worker must first sharpen his tools before doing a good job. This idiom also applies to downloading videos. If you wish to save series nicely and quickly, a good TV downloader is indispensable. If you're planning to search for such tools, some selection criteria as listed below can be used as a reference.
- Compatibility - a good video downloader should have board compatibility.
- Formats - a good video downloader should support various video formats.
- Easy-of-use - new users can adapt it easily.
- Websites - the websites supported for download should be broad.
- Virus-free - namely, no virus comes with this program.
There are very few programs that can meet all these criteria. But if you're not a stickler for perfection, you can try this fast video downloader - EaseUS MobiMover. This program lets you download TV series or movies from various video sites like YouTube, Vimeo, MySpace, Break, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and more. Before downloading, you can plug your device into your computer and set your device as the default save location. Thus, you can directly download videos to your iPhone/iPad without an extra transfer process.
To download TV shows on your computer with EaseUS MobiMover:
Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiMover, choose "Video Downloader" and select the location to download online videos to your computer (PC or Mac) or mobile device. You need to connect an iOS device to your computer if you choose your iDevice to save the video.

Part 2. Download TV Shows on iPhone from Websites
If you don't like using third-party software, you can try saving your favorite TV shows from some non-profit channel sites like AllTVshows, GoyTV, DirectTV, JustWatch, etc. Most of these websites allow users to watch TV series and movies online and download them to watch offline.
