Apple Sued over iTunes Season Pass Subscription

A recent federal class action lawsuit alleges that Apple deceived iTunes customers who purchased a “Season Pass” for the final season of the popular AMC series “Breaking Bad” by breaking the season in two and charging customers a second time to watch the second half of the season.

The fifth and final season of Breaking Bad includes 16 episodes.  The first eight episodes aired in Summer 2012 and the final eight episodes aired in Summer 2013. Although the episodes aired one year apart, the episodes are listed as part of the same season.

When season 5 became available on iTunes, customers were offered a Season Pass for $21.99 for high definition and $13.99 for standard definition.  In exchange, “they were promised: ‘[t]his Season Pass includes all current and future episodes of Breaking Bad, Season 5,’” according to the complaint.

When the second half of the season became available on iTunes in early August, customers who had already paid for the season 5 Season Pass were required to pay another $22.99 or $14.99 for access to the final episodes.

The lawsuit accuses Apple of deceptive and unfair trade for the way it sold Breaking Bad on iTunes.
