A lot of shows had their seasons cut short during the writers strike. Apple is giving those customers who stuck with their iTunes subscriptions an attaboy by crediting them for however many episodes got nixed. So if your favorite show got shortened by, say, six episodes, then six free episodes off iTunes is what you’ll get.
You one of the lucky ones whose show survived intact? Apple hasn’t forgotten you. If you’re a “Season Pass” holder, you get two free episodes just for being that kind of person. A few companies could learn something from Apple’s customer relations department. I’m looking at you, Comcast.
