Apple offers refunds to 'Breaking Bad' Season Pass holders following mixupApple on Monday sent out emails to "Breaking Bad" Season Pass holders, saying they would be receiving the final eight episodes for free after the season was split into two parts, resulting in confusion over pricing that resulted in a class action lawsuit.
In the short letters sent out today, Apple apologized for confusion stemming from AMC's decision to split the the last season of Breaking Bad into two separate parts, dubbed "Season 5" and "The Final Season," both of which contain eight episodes each. The finale season of the hit show was originally slated to be a single 16-episode run.
Customers who purchased the Season Pass prior to the split were informed that they would be provided with an iTunes code worth $22.99, which can be put towards "The Final Season" as well as any other content in the store. This will also serve as refunds for customers who purchased both seasons after the mixup.
Earlier this month, Apple was sued over its handling of the situation, with plaintiffs claiming the company falsely advertised its prepaid pricing for Breaking Bad, demanding the company release both seasons to those customers who bought the Season Pass thinking all 16 episodes were included.
The series finale of Breaking Bad airs this Sunday on AMC and will be available for download on iTunes shortly thereafter.
