Not really true. I just downloaded the first episode of Eureka for free, and it's 640 x 480.

Only for those living in the USA. Anywhere else, it's not available, even if it's free. :(

Any video that has been free for some times is still free, at the new resolution.

For example, within ten minutes of iTunes 7 becoming available for download yesterday (before the download page even admitted you were about to download iTunes 7,) I was re-downloading the NBC special "Bono in Africa" and the Sci-Fi Channel "Battlestar Galactica" specials, both in 640x480. The BSG special still has crappy video quality. (But it's BIG crappy!)

The Sci-Fi show 'Eureka' has its hour-and-a-half Pilot episode as a free download, at a whopping 885.6 MB. This makes it (by far) the largest free download the iTunes Store has offered to date. (edit: Whoops, somehow I missed that Eureka was the show mentioned by the others, above.)

If you go to ABC.com you can get free iTunes downloads of the season finales of Lost, Desperate Housewives and Gray's Anatomy as well.

EDIT: You can get these direct from iTunes, without the need to go to ABC.com.

Do all the BSG downloads have crappy quality like the free special?

I'll probably buy them anyway (once I get caught up with Season 2.5 via Netflix), but just wondering.
