Did anyone order the Hatton fight?, I did and paid the 15.00. I then got a letter saying I had set up a DD to pay them 15.00 a month. I checked with the bank and cancelled it as I don't want this channel. I have paid for the boxing and thats all I wanted to see.

Today I received this letter,

How did you order the fight? Its seems as though they think you have entered into a contract with them.

Tried on TV but it wouldn't work, so did it online.

I thought I was paying 15.00 for the boxing and then I get this rubbish in the post.

I've mailed them twice but had no reply.I did get a phone call but could not tell what the guy was saying!!!

I used to work for them,


I used to get phone calls about this all the time. Basically when you subscribed to the boxing you subscribe on a yearly contract which they do tell you.


I am guessing you went through it quickly when doing it online. Worst thing is they never cancel however I think within a certain amount of days they will do so..


As for not being able to understand us.. We do live on the same island! so I dont believe that for a second

Had a call from a young lady who this time could be understood !!. She was very helpful and admitted they were wrong and I should not have been charged again until 23rd Sept. She apologised and said if I wanted to keep the channel it would be 9.99 a month not 15.00, so I may now keep it.
