In the new Terms and Conditions for the iTunes store, it says that the following has changed:

Notification of an additional type of previously purchased content that may be subsequently downloaded to certain computers and devices as an accommodation to you, subject to existing association rules; and that such content may be played back on certain devices that are not subject to existing association rules, with limitations.

What does this mean?

It means you can download TV shows you've purchased in the past for different Apple devices, though it may not always be available to download at all times.
