Apple’s U.S. iTunes Store now features the
Million Hit Lowdown, a special promotion from ABC that offers free season finales and recaps of three of its biggest hit shows — at least until they’ve been downloaded a million times.
“Fans or first-timers, now is the time to catch up on television’s biggest hits,” reads the info on the Million Hit Lowdown page. ABC is offering for free the first million downloads of Lost, Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy, three of its most popular dramas from the past television season.
What’s more, the company is offering unlimited downloads of special highlight shows helping viewers who may have missed episodes (or perhaps never watched) to get up to speed with what’s happening, in time for each series’ season premier this fall. The highlight shows feature commentary from show producers and editors of People magazine and Entertainment Weekly .
