    Yeah, he wasn't clear at all, was he?

    The seasons aren't free, but you can get an HD and SD copy of every (maybe not EVERY since I didn't check them all, but at least a few) season's first episode for free.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong but.... I don't see how you get them for free? It is telling me I have to pay 2.99 per episode...

    From what I can tell so far, it seems like the 1st episode of what was listed is free, in most cases.

    Example:
    The Office - Season 4 - Episode 1

    Monk - Season 7 - Episode 1

    The ones that are listed that don't have a specific season are usually the latest seasons. So it would be the later seasons for Battlestar Gallactica & Top Design & The Rachel Zoe Project

    Also, at the Home screen of the iTunes store, an ad up top (random) will direct you to the special offers.

    It's good for sampling what's available. Works for me.

    Warning, however, it takes a LONG time to download these. Some of the HD files are like 2.2 Gb! I have a 10 Mbps connection at home but even at that rate you're talking a 30 minute download and that's just for 1 show in HD. Add in the SD that comes along with it & get all 12 and you're talking a good 12 hour download and hard drive filler.
