Dear Apple,

Thank you. I had pretty much written off what happened as a silly mistake and although I didn’t feel very good about it, I had decided there wasn’t much I could do. You did the right thing, and proved to me again you are a class act.

What am I referring to? Well, earlier this year you made available for sale South Park Season 10. I happily paid $11.99 for a season pass and started downloading episodes. Then during the hiatus between the first and second half of the season I found out that my subscription had “finished”. You also had changed the name of the subscription to South Park Season 10A and added a new season labeled Season 10B. This meant that if I wanted to see the second half of the season, I would have to pay another $11.99.

When this happened, I felt betrayed. I felt that I had asked for the whole season, and then you had decided to change it on me half way through. “Classic bait and switch”, I thought. I had pretty much decided at that point that I wouldn’t subscribe to another season pass through iTunes.

Then yesterday, I found out that you had changed your mind. You made iTunes Season 10B available to everyone who had purchased a iTunes Season 10 season pass. That was the right thing to do, and a smart customer service move. Now I’m looking forward to the next season of South Park, and this time, I’m sure you’ll be clear on what I’m receiving.

  1. Does this mane n e one else warm and mushy inside?

    It’s great when a company makes a mistake then fixes it!

  2. Crap! I just bought 10B after giving up hope on this happening.
