When the final season episodes of Breaking Bad appeared on iTunes with a new season pass, and a new price, there were some customers who felt a little outraged. The final season of the hit AMC show has been split in two parts, and many thought that purchasing a pass for the first part would also entitle them to the final eight episodes airing this year. This wasn't the case, but now, in an email obtained by 9to5Mac Apple is informing customers of a refund:
Dear Customer, We apologize for any confusion the naming of “Season 5″ and “The Final Season” of Breaking Bad might have caused you. While the names of the seasons and episodes associated with them were not chosen by iTunes, we’d like to offer you “The Final Season” on us by providing you with the iTunes code below in the amount of $22.99. This credit can also be used for any other content on the iTunes Store. Thank you for your purchase.
The decision to split the series wasn't Apple's, but the decision to refund certainly is. Affected customers should look out for an email similar to that above, and a credit of $22.99 on their iTunes account. For everyone else, "The Final Season" episodes remain on sale in the iTunes Store at the same price as before.
