So now Zune will download the feed and display the available show. You can now click on the Download button of any show that you want. By default, Zune will automatically try to download the first 3 video. So you can access the  “Series Settings” so you will be able to configure how Zune will handle this series.

After that you can now watch the videos in Zune or if you prefer you can sync the video to your Windows Phone 7 by right click on the video that you want to sync and click “Sync with …”
