I just filed a complaint with the BBB against mlb.tv. Hopefully this is a lesson for everyone to NEVER bother using their "5 day free trial." What a joke...over a month and a half later and they still have my money. Not all scammers are from Nigeria...

On a different, but related note. I used mlb.tv in '06. But mlb.tv renewed automatically in march for the year. Fortunately I saw it happen right away and sent a note immediately to their customer service (I think I was within the 10 day window). And they credited my account. So my story ends good, but it seems mlb needs to take some ownership of this and stop these shady practices. I understand that someone else owns and runs it (guessing). But it is their name (mlb.com) on the product that is linked from their site.

I'd just to bump this and once again warn everyone to NEVER use this fraudulent service. It has been nearly 3 months and mlb.com still has my stolen $20. I spoke to a manager there two weeks ago, walked him through my entire ordeal and was assured that he would take care of this after he saw that yes, I had in fact cancelled in time. And today I receive another email saying my refund has been DENIED. This is insane...it's $20. I cancelled 3 days into the "free" trial. I just can't understand this...
