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.

itunes tv complete my season pass
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!)

Rent to Own Movies?

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?

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.

You guys do know that you can view Dr. Who episodes for free (at least they appear to be) on BBC America don't you?? Just asking..... http://www.bbcamerica.com/doctor-who/guide/

I just looked, and I didn't see any way to view full episodes on that site - only clips/trailers. But even if they did offer full shows, I'd still have to watch them on my laptop rather than my TV.

I agree it should be .99 cents an episode for HD, if it were I'd buy all my shows like that.

I agree - 99 cents is the right price point for a one-hour show. I was disappointed that Apple stopped offering episode rentals at that price.
