New "Free on iTunes" Section in iTunes Store Offers Music & TV Episodes

Apple has launched a new section in the iTunes Store title "Free on iTunes" that gives you convenient access to free songs and free full-length TV episodes. The music section currently offers 16 songs from artists such as Rogue Wave, Purity Ring, Michelle Chamuel, and Machine Head — which, as you can see, are mostly unknown or up-and-coming artists. The 24 TV episodes available are from TV series such as 12 Monkeys, The Musketeers, K.C. Undercover, Backstrom, and Eye Candy, plus episodes from educational channels such as TLC and Animal Planet. This new section is available in the desktop iTiunes software and on your device.

Another great offer in the iTunes Store is a weekly 99¢ movie rental called Movie of the Week. As I write this, the movie available is Frank

And since we're highlighting sections in the iTunes Store, you may want to check out some of the others. In particular, a section titled The Oscar Winners takes you to lists of all the movies that have won awards since the beginning of the Academy Awards in 1929. The lists include best picture, best actor, best actress, best supporting actor and actress, best director, best animated feature, and best original screenplay. And of course Apple helpfully lets you buy or rent these movies. 

The iBooks Store also has a large selection of Free Books in a variety of genres. These include free User Guides for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 8.1. Many of the books available are classics that are public domain, such as Sherlock Holmes adventures, as well as more recent books that are free.
