Apple launches 'Free On iTunes' section with songs and TV shows instantly available


Presto Streaming TV and Movies

Last week saw Apple launch their new Free on iTunes section, containing a variety of music and list of full-length television episodes for consumer consumption, with those in America being able to benefit from the freebie straight from their iTunes accounts.

 
Located in the Music or TV Shows tab, the Free on iTunes blue button currently sees 24 television shows and 16 songs being offered for free, with a ‘Get’ button being enabled rather than the usual ‘Buy’ icon.

Some free shows are also listed outside of the blue button but come with a free yellow tag.

Though the artists featured may not be storming up the mainstream charts, it’s a way for users to discover new music without having to commit to a purchase.

TV episodes available include BBC America’s The Musketeers and MTV’s Eye Candy, as well as My Big Fat Fabulous Life and Syfy’s 12 Monkeys, all available in standard and high definition.

This comes after Apple’s recent discontinuation of their free ‘Single of the Week’ project, which gave uses a free track once every seven days.

No confirmation has yet been made on whether the tech firm giant are to add additional content to the service – such as books or movies – but it could be likely as the company already offer a $0.99 ‘Movie of the Week’ promotion.
