A season pass allows you to buy all the episodes of a season for one flat rate. According to the lawsuit, Apple is misrepresenting the number of episodes you will get with the season pass because they include promotional clips.
“Consumers purchase the Season Features, reasonably believing that each episode is a standard, plot-based episode and that, by purchasing the Season Features, they are receiving a significant discount over purchasing each episode individually,” states the complaint. “However, because many of the episodes in the Season Features are promotional clips, consumers are not receiving the number of episodes and the discount they expected.”
Davis, California, resident Gabriela Zaragoza is the co-lead plaintiff. According to the complaint, she bought a season pass for Genius: Einstein for $24.99 believing she was getting 13 episodes, a discount over the individual purchase price of $2.99 for each episode, but there were only six episodes and seven promotional clips.
“Until Apple redesigns its iTunes store, or Apple is enjoined from making further false and misleading representations, Plaintiffs and other consumers will continue to bear this ongoing injury,” states the complaint.
For now, this class-action lawsuit is still in the early stages. Look for Amazon, Google, Walmart, and others to pay close attention to this lawsuit because they all offer similar season pass options.
