Plan Changed Without Authorization

Message 1 of 2

Where do I go to dispute a plan change without my authorization?


I was on Live Chat this morning to try and get 1 singular channel (732 FXMHD) that was not showing up on my STB to work. They informed me the channel was not showing up because I was on the Old Channel Offering and that I would need to be upgraded.


The upgrade was made and unbeknownst to me, I now am being charge $10 more a month. The technician never told me there would be a rate increase. I asked multiple times that I did not want anything that would raise my bill. They assured me that there would be no price increase.

I am now being charge $10 more a month and my Sports Pass package has been removed from my account. When talking with Live Chat support to reverse this change, I am told that the old "grandfathered" plan is no longer available. The best that could be done was a one time $10 credit on my account.


To recap, an unauthorized $10 per month charge was placed on my account ($240 over 2 years) and all that can be done is a one time $10 credit. I would like to dispute any further payments as I did not agree to this increase. I have all of the Chat ID #'s and receipts stored for those who require it.


Thanks in advance,
