There are eight episodes — plus a Christmas special — to Downton Abbey Season 3, and even though the season only started airing in the U.S. on January 6, it will be out on DVD on January 29.

However, if you want to go about things a different way, Apple said North American subscribers to iTunes who purchase a season pass for Downton Abbey can see the last three episodes of Season 3 before they air on PBS. According to Deadline, the episodes — including the season finale, which airs in February — will be available for download on iTunes beginning January 29.  

So January 29 should be a big day for Downton Abbey fans … unless you’d rather just watch the season as it plays out each week on PBS.
