Both Battle 360 and Patton 360 are available on iTunes for only $0.99 an episode.  Here are the descriptions from iTunes:

Battle 360, Season 1

For nearly a decade, the legendary World War II aircraft carrier USS Enterprise held a pivotal place on the turbulent seas of war, engaging in some of the fiercest multifront battles ever witnessed in modern combat.  The only carrier to be front and center in every major sea conflict in the Pacific, the Enterprise and her crew’s battles were marked by intense firepower, instinct and a 360-coordination between the ship, the destroyers, the aircraft above and the submarines below.  In each of ten episodes, and using incredible CGI visualizations, Battle 360 follows the Enterprise and its men through another conflict of WWII as they fight off the enemy from the air, the sea and underwater.  Episodes include “Vengeance at Midway,” “Bloody Santa Cruz,” “D-Day In the Pacific,” and “Battle of Leyte Gulf.”

Patton 360

Controversial throughout World War II for his personal flamboyance, outspokenness, uncompromising standards, and aggressive combat strategy, George S. Patton played a key role in the headlong Allied armored thrust to Germany after D-Day.  Now, following the success of the series Battle 360, HISTORY brings viewers an epic new series about Patton, one of America’s most famous generals.  Patton 360 weaves a mix of CGI battle scenes, interviews with historians and men who fought under Patton, and commentary by modern-day military experts, offering a dramatic 360-degree view of the brilliant strategy and leadership Patton exemplified as he beat back the Nazi tidal wave in WWII.  Patton 360 not only puts viewers right in the action of the primary battles fought by Patton in North Africa, Sicily and Europe, but also provides them with unique insights into Patton the man, known to his troops as “Old Blood and Guts.”
