Furious ‘Breaking Bad’ buyers on iTunes to get refund
TV » Fans who thought they were buying both halves of season will get redeemable code.

It was enough for any fan of "Breaking Bad" to "break bad."

The fifth and final season of the hit AMC drama (which ends this Sunday) was split into two halves as is customary for many cable television shows. If that wasn’t enough consternation, fans who originally bought the "season pass" of the entire fifth season on iTunes thought they were purchasing both halves in one sale. In fact they were just buying the first, and those who felt cheated were about to go on a killing spree like their favorite anti-hero Walter White.

But now, Apple, in an unprecedented move, is taking part of the blame and is offering a $23 credit to those who bought the first half of the season.

In an email to customers, Apple said it would offer a redeemable code:

"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."
