Apple Launches 'Free on iTunes' Section With Free TV and Music Downloads

Apple today added a new "Free on iTunes" section in the iTunes Store, featuring free downloads of songs and full length TV episodes. The section replaces Apple's "iTunes Single of the Week", which previously offered free songs from popular and indie music artists.

Currently, Apple is offering full-length TV episodes from shows including Fox's Backstrom, Syfy's 12 Monkey's, Disney Channel's KC Undercover, and MTV's Eye Candy. On the music side, Apple is offering downloads from artists such as Purity Ring, Jauz, Asking Alexandria, and Guster.

Apple's "Free on iTunes" section is live now, and it is likely that the company will offer new content every week as it has done with the iTunes Single of the Week and its App of the Week section.

Update: The new section appears to be U.S.-only for the time being.

Great....another American article author who took the ,,,"we are the world" song a little too literally. ...sheesh. Please add some kind of comment early in the article that it's US only.

What about all the people who complained nonstop about the free days of christmas, u2 and free singles. They take them away and you still complain about how could Apple take this way. Now, They add a different free service and I am sure complaints will follow. I am guessing if they gave everyone a free Mac Mini you (society) would complain it is not a iMac.....

Thank the entertainment industry that want separate negotiations for each region.

The amount of great artists and dope music I've come across over the years with the Free Singles was an important pastime for me as a youngster from the onset of the iTunes store up through the first few years of college (until I started working at the college radio station and had my pickings of virtually anything and everything, as well as the explosion of the music blog scene). I'll always put the Free Single section as an important portion of my music discovery that led me to a career in music. I'm very glad Apple is continuing this. Even if they don't know it, that little section had an impact on this little musician...

Great News.


This is a chance to get a few more songs than just the 2...not sure if this will be updated weekly, or monthly though but nice to get a mix of tunes rather than just one songs in a genre you may not prefer.

Kudos
