Usually you have to enter your credit card information to sign up, but here’s an easy way to get an i Tunes account for free downloads without entering any payment info.
Although i Tunes Store is known for paid downloads of movies, music, and more, it also has a treasure trove of free media.
Some of it, including Podcasts and i Tunes U educational content do not require an account to download.
However, any other free content, including free i Phone/i Pod Touch apps and free or promotional music, videos, and TV Shows all require an account to download.
If you try to download a free movie or music download, you will be required to enter payment information.
Even though your card will not be charged, it will be kept on file so you can be charged if you download a for-pay item.
However, if you only plan to download free items, it may be preferable to not have your account linked to a credit card.
