Here is some information for MLB.tv/premium subscribers. If you have an account with MLB.com like I do (and have had for many years) and had a season pass last year, your plan is likely set up to auto-renew any day now. There are a few catches to this situation to be aware of heading up to that day.
- They don’t tell you the exact date it will happen, but they do give an approximation.
- It will be drawn from whatever card number they have on file for you set as your primary card on your “Payment Profile.”
- If there aren’t sufficient funds available, their page advises you they will try the other cards they have on file, but they don’t tell you in which sequence and give you no control of the sequence.
- You can’t delete any of your cards they have on file, online or over the phone.
- They tell you that if you don’t like this, hard cheese. You shouldn’t have given it to them in the first place:
If you do not wish for us to use this payment information in this manner, please do not save more than a single primary debit or credit card in your Payment Profile.
- If you call them to complain about this, they tell you there isn’t anything that can be done, but someone who presumably also can’t do anything will call you back. And then they don’t, at least not in my case.
There is some good news for this year:
New for 2012: At Bat 12 is now included with purchase of an MLB.TV Premium Subscription – watch LIVE games on your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and most Android phones and tablets.
So, if you are like me and set it up last year to come straight out of your checking via debit, be advised that there’s a $120 hit coming RealSoonNow.
