iTunes has a bunch of full TV episodes to download for free in HD quality, such as The Incredible Bionic Man from Smithsonian Channel. The 1st episode of the upcoming series is offered to download in SD quality (703 MB), HD quality (1.67 GB), or in even higher 1080p HD (1.99 GB). The 1080p version, in case you were wondering, would take up almost three times as much hard drive space as the standard-definition version. The Incredible Bionic Man is scheduled to premiere on Oct. 20, 2013.
Other TV shows available to download or stream for free include Episode 1 of ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, a new take on the classic fairy tale Alice in Wonderland; Episode 1 of Lifetime’s Million Dollar Shoppers that follows affluent and elite shoppers around the world; and a 23-minute pilot of The Michael J. Fox Show that revolves around a father of three children who struggles with Parkinson’s disease.
