SAN JOSE (CN) - Apple deceived iTune customers by selling a "Season Pass" for the final season of "Breaking Bad," then breaking the season in two and charging a second time, consumers claim in a federal class action.
Lead plaintiff Noam Lazebnik accuses Apple of deceptive and unfair trade for the way it sold "Breaking Bad" on iTunes.
This season's episodes are listed as "Season 5, Episode 9 (509), Season 5, Episode 10 (510), etc.," Lazebnik says in the complaint.
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,'" Lazebnik says in the complaint.

But when the second half of the season became available on iTunes in early August this year, customers with a season pass had to pay another $22.99 or $14.99 to get them, Lazebnik says.
