“Apple has extended an olive branch to angry ‘Breaking Bad’ fans by offering up refunds to disgruntled customers who purchased the show’s final season on iTunes [Store],” Daniel Goldblatt reports for Variety.
“The cost of the show and what constituted ‘a season’ was the subject of much frustration by customers on iTunes who purchased season 5 of the show last year for $22.99,” Goldblatt reports. “They thought (or perhaps assumed) they were getting this last batch of eight episodes as well (since AMC dubs all of them ‘season 5’) but that was not the case.”
Goldblatt reports, “A class action suit was filed against Apple — even though the call to break up the seasons and how to price them was AMC’s decision — but now Apple has sent an email to customers who bought the first half of the season, offering them a refund… AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ also plans on splitting its final season two. We’ll see how Apple and AMC decide to handle that one.”
