Last season, my brother and I signed up for NHL.com's GameCenter LIVE. We had used it the season before and enjoyed the service. Last season, however, I found myself repeatedly frustrated with it as Penguins games were often blacked out for no reason (that I could find), and unlike the season before, I could not watch any of the Penguins' post season games. Other post season games came in fine - but no Pens. Needless to say, I was not amused.
Long story short, the season ended and I relaxed with the thought that I would not be dropping any more money on a headache for this season. Imagine my surprise when I found they had billed me the full amount for this season's services. Turns out, they have an automated annual renewal service inacted without any kind of notice to the person paying. It really is my own fault - I should have spotted it earlier. So now I'm dealing with having to canel the service to get my $160 back, as well as having to call a phone number to cancel the resubscription 'service'.
Moral of the story? Make sure something's really gone before you toss it from your thoughts.
See you when the gloves drop.
