Apple offers final 'Downton Abbey' episodes before they air on PBS

'Downton Abbey' season 3

The drama at the English estate kicks off on PBS on Jan. 6, 2013. Get a sneak peek at some of the photos from the new season!

If you're a fan of "Downton Abbey" but not a fan of the long wait between the U.K. broadcast and the U.S. broadcast, there a little good news. In just two weeks, you can finish up the entire season before the final three episodes even air on PBS.

But of course, a perk like that comes at a premium price -- $19.99, to be exact.

On Monday, Apple announced that "Downton" devotees who purchase a "season pass" for the series from the company's iTunes store will be privy to the early viewing in the form of "the unedited U.K. edition."

The advance screening kicks off on Jan. 29.

As for viewers who prefer their TV favorites free, PBS will air the last three episodes of the series on Feb. 3, 10 and 17 respectively.
