Apple Rolls Out 'Complete My Season Pass' for TV Shows

While Apple has long offered a "Complete My Album" feature in the iTunes Store to allow users who have previously purchased individual tracks to upgrade to the full album at a discounted price reflecting their single-track purchases, users have not had the flexibility of a similar option for TV shows.


That appears to have changed this week with the addition of a "Complete My Season Pass" feature now available in the iTunes Store. When logged in and viewing an iTunes Store page listing for a single season of a TV show, the Season Pass purchase price will be reduced by the amount of previous single-episode purchases, allowing users to upgrade to the full season without having to essentially repurchase the episodes they had previously acquired individually.

Season passes for TV shows typically come at a significant discount compared to buying each episode of the season individually. Consequently, the new Complete My Season Pass feature should offer users who find themselves having already purchased several episodes of a season and wishing to upgrade to the full season a way to save some money.

(Thanks, Charles!)

don't tell me u watch iTunes rips and feel like you are taking advantage of real HD pleasure


What I buy in iTunes is good enough for me. Please tell me why I need a big HD TV and BD player to be able to enjoy my shows.

It's on baby... Now someone just needs to start making television shows that cater to people with triple-digit IQ's.

Now all we need iTunes to add is "Rent-to-Own" movies, where after renting a movie, it deducts the rental price from the purchase price if you choose to buy it.

Now what they need to start doing is allowing us to upgrade movies/tv shows we may have purchased in SD (for what ever reason, often because at the time it was the only option) in HD for the difference.

About time. But what's still missing is an HD upgrade option. I bought the Dr. Horrible webisodes before Apple offered HD videos. Why can't I pay $1 to upgrade to the HD version?

With all the streaming options available these days I'm not sure why anyone would want to pay a relatively large amount of money to "purchase" a television series. You could pay for three months of streaming for the cost of one season.

Anyone here buy tv series as opposed to streaming? What are your reasons?

I noticed this yesterday. I still find it easier and more affordable to buy each show as it is released each week.


Yes, but after you've bought enough $3 episodes upon weekly release to reach the price of the season pass, it's even more affordable to click "$0.00 Buy Season Pass" and get the rest of the season for free.
