Amazing. I call them to terminate service as we are leaving Hong Kong, they tell me the "penalty" for early termination is payment of the duration of contract--in this case till Sept 2011.
PLUS I have to "pay them back" for the "free gift" that came with this magnanimous contract, a gift I never collected nor desired or requested. AND, to return the cable box, I have to go to their office only after they have received a termination notice (which by the way, I must receive from them and sign and return before they register the termination)--if they were to send someone to pick up, I'd be charged $150.
I am told by their officer that only if I were to die would I be released from this contract.
Anyone escaped this with their lives?!
