On the morning of October 10, Beijing time, Sina Technologies News reported that Apple suffered a class action lawsuit in the United States for miscounting its TV series sold through iTunes Store.
The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in California, where the plaintiffs accused Apple of selling the promotional films to users in packages that also counted as episodes.
In iTunes Store, apple allows users to buy entire TV series through Season Pass in accordance with the set number. The goal of this lawsuit is the Season Pass purchase option.
One plaintiff said he spent $24.99 on Genius: Einstein through Season Pass. He thought there were 13 episodes, but in fact, there were 6 promotional films.
Another plaintiff also said he spent $19.99 on Killing Eve, which has 11 episodes, but also six promotional films.
The lawsuit accuses apple of three counts of false propaganda, unfair competition and fraud. All users who purchase TV series through Season Pass can participate in class action. (Ding Hong)
