Delete videos: deleting films and TV shows | iOS 11 Guide

Downloaded films and TV shows can take up a lot of room on your iPhone, but it’s not very obvious how to delete them if you want to free up some space.

To delete a film, tap Edit followed by the “X” icon in the top left corner of the cover.


To delete a single TV episode, select it then scroll down to see the list. From here, swipe across from right to left to reveal the Delete button.

To delete all episodes of a TV show, return to the main view featuring all the program covers and tap the Edit button. Tapping the trash icon will remove all episodes. Note that you can only delete items stored on the device and not those in iCloud.

Hide Videos

Even if videos are deleted from the device they will still be visible, as they’ll be stored in iCloud. To hide these on your device, open Settings, select Videosand turn off the Show All Videos option.
