Channel 4 has shunned Apple and its iTunes music store in the UK and from today is offering Lost fans the chance to download the entire first series to their PC.

In a UK exclusive, you can now watch full episodes of Lost on your PC. Every episode from the amazing first season is available now and brand new episodes of Season Two will be available one week after transmission on Channel 4.

Episodes one and two are free to view for 2 weeks only until May 11th 2006.

After that viewers will be expected pay 99p per episode. Payment is via credit card using a secure registration system.

However you will only be able to watch the show for a 24 hour period on a single PC before it deletes itself.

The system is only available to PC users with Microsoft Window Media Player 10.
