Apple adds ‘free' section to iTunes store

Called, rather unimaginatively, ‘Free on iTunes,' the new strand to its online storefront lists songs and TV shows that are free to download.

Called, rather unimaginatively, 'Free on iTunes,' the new strand to its online storefront lists songs and TV shows that are free to download.

It's not yet clear if the new section, which went live on Monday, will be rolling out beyond the US. 'Free on iTunes' has been added to the US site without any prior promotion and Apple has been its usual secretive self about any plans to bring the feature to other countries.

So for the moment at least the section is a US exclusive and US visitors to iTunes are able to download a choice of 16 tracks including 'Eyes' by Rouge Wave and 'How We Die' by Machine Head plus 24 full-length TV episodes such as the pilot for the SyFy Channel-made adaptation of the Terry Gilliam film '12 Monkeys.'

Notably all of the audio-visual goodies on offer are parts of larger, paid-for wholes -- each of the tracks that can be downloaded free of charge are taken from albums that are not free. Likewise, all of the TV shows are part of larger seasons, which can be purchased in their entirety from iTunes.
