In news that reads more like good customer service to avoid negative PR than anything, iTunes are providing customers who bought the Season 5 Season pass for Breaking Bad with a voucher for $22.99.

It's no secret that AMC split season 5 right down the middle into two 8 episode chunks, but what the network hadn't considered is the knock on effect it would have on online sales hubs: iTunes infuriated their customer base by not including all 16 episodes on their Season 5 season pass, prompting one to even file a lawsuit. Thankfully, Apple have now seen the error of their ways, sending all Season 5 customers the following email:

"Dear Customer,

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.

Detailed instructions for redeeming the code can be found at"
