Apple's New "Free on iTunes" Feature Offers Free TV Shows & Music, including '12 Monkeys' & 'Backstrom'

A new section for free content has been added to iTunes. 

Apple now offers a "Free on iTunes" option in the iTunes store. The new section allows users to download select songs and TV show episodes for free.

Users can access the free content by clicking on the blue "Free on iTunes" button located in the TV and Music sections in the iTunes store. Users can then browse the selection of free media and download the tracks and episodes for free. The current library consists of 16 songs and 27 TV shows, including tracks by Lifehouse, Sharon Van Etten, and Joshua Radin, and episodes of '12 Monkeys,' and 'Backstrom.'

iTunes is currently available on computers, laptops, and iOS devices. It's unclear how long Apple will offer the "Free on iTunes" section or how often the company will update the selection of complimentary content. Reports indicate that the feature is currently only available in the US.
