Apple Offers Refunds in Response to “Breaking Bad” Lawsuit
by Dan Brecher on September 27, 2013
Fans of AMC’s hit series “Breaking Bad” will not have to call in “attorney” Saul Goodman after all. Facing a class-action lawsuit and mounting bad publicity over its decision to divide the final season of the hit series into two parts on iTunes, Apple, Inc. will offer refunds to customers who believed they were buying all 16 episodes.
The issue arose after AMC decided to air the final season of “Breaking Bad” over the course of two years. The first eight episodes aired in 2012, and the second half premiered on August 11, 2013. The series finale will broadcast this Sunday.
Apple sold a "Season Pass" for the final season on iTunes, which many fans believed wouldprovide access to all 16 episodes. However, when the show began airing the again this summer, fans discovered they would have to pay an additional $21.99 for high definition and $13.99 for standard definition for the final eight episodes.
