Take That has become the first U.K. music act to issue an iTunes "season pass" subscription package.

The "Take That The Circus Live: iTunes Pass" goes live today (May 21) and offers fans exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, live recordings and interviews with the band as it heads out on its record-breaking 2009 Circus stadium tour, which broke U.K. box office records when tickets went on sale October last year.

The downloads will be delivered in 12 instalments over six weeks, beginning June 6, for a one-off payment of £4.99 ($7.78) from the iTunes Store. Future instalments will roll out throughout the tour, culminating in a final download just after the act's final Wembley Stadium show on July 5 after which the full package will be available to download until Aug 31.

Those who sign up for the "Take That The Circus Live" subscription will receive backstage footage from every city on the Circus tour, interviews with the band, three live audio tracks including the new single "Said It All" plus a PDF souvenir booklet.

All the content will be exclusive to pass holders. In addition, the first 8,000 to sign up to the subscription service will be able to apply for a laminate with a unique code allowing the owner to download an additional song from the Take That catalog.

Take That's most recent album "The Circus" (Polydor/Universal), has been certified six-times platinum by the BPI for 1.8 million shipments. The band's 2009 summer stadium tour will see the reformed nineties group play to over a million people and begins June 5 at Sunderland's Stadium of Light, culminating July 5 at London's Wembley Stadium.
