We just downloaded an episode of one of our favourite series from iTunes but we don't have appleTV.
I am trying to work out how to transfer the file to a usb stick so that we can plug it into the 'thingamabob' which allows us to watch movies on our TV.

We are 'on the verge' of no TV land and until it's all sorted, we don't want to buy any new equipment until we know what will actually work for us.
