- German iTunes store users say the service is "fundamentally broken".
- They took to Reddit to complain about the lack of 4K content, original language versions of shows, and pricing issues.
Users of Apple's German iTunes service have taken to Reddit to complain that the store is "fundamentally broken" in a scathing tirade.
The post says TV shows are the worst culprit, and that users are unable to by shows in multiple languages, having to pay twice for the dubbed and original versions.
The rant also says that iTunes offers shows at the wrong price "over and over again", with the price of show seasons simply the cost of individual shows added together, rather than as the standard cheaper bundle:
The complaint also states that iTunes customer support "is the opposite of helpful", and insists it has no control over pricing and copyrights for dubs, etc.
Other users soon chimed in to share their experiences:
