    Mediascam Pay-Per-View venting

    I'll be the one know expressing my displeasure about the cable provider. My 10-year old son is big WWE wrestling fan and has been for a few years. Well he has always gone through the pay-per-view from "on demand" to see what it cost $44.95. Last year he was always looking at the upcoming events, and noticed that at certain times they would come up at $9.95. This price was about 3 weeks before the actual event. I thought it was too good to be true, but had my doubts and did not order. Well a month or so ago it came up again for the Royal Rumble, so it was close to his birthday and said OK to order it. It came on screen as $9.95.

    Needless to say, it was too good to be true. Got our bill, with you guessed it, with the $44.95 charge not one but for two charges. My wife called to ask what is going on and then I called back about it also. The first reason we called was they charged us for it twice!! I let that go for a couple days and called back to day to express my feelings about the pay-per-view price. The guy really couldn't do anything about the price, but they did take off one of the charges. He couldn't do anything because their was no way to prove that it was $9.95 from his end. My wife and son along with myself saw it, but he told me that the only way to prove it would be to take a picture of it with the actual price with a cell phone or camera. I should have know better from the start as I knew it was too good to be true.

    Has anyone else ever come across this issue?

    What a nice business plan. You only get the lower price if you can prove we actually said it! We will concede nothing!
