Well, maybe they should based on rules mandated by the movie studios, but I can tell you it's never been a policy of Shaw to charge people more than once for a PPV movie regardless of how many times it's been viewed even after the initial 48 hour window. Like I mention in the other thread, Shaw confirmed in writing that they don't. I just now got confirmation from Shaw Direct twitter that they have NEVER charged people for multiple views off a PVR regardless of when it's recorded.
Quote from Twitter rep- "That's definitely not right. We've never charged for people watching PPV after 48 hours if it's saved on their PVR."
I guarantee you will not find one person who was charged more than once for a PPV movie, unless they ordered it again by accident or something. There is no way for Shaw to police this anyway, as lots of folks don't have their receiver hooked to a phone line.
And because of this, this is why you now see the new firmware making recordings expire after 48 hours.
I've watched PPV movies multiple times and it shows up once in the ppv order history, on the day I ordered it, and I'm hooked to a phone line.
Anyway, I've said all I'm going to say on the subject as it's getting off topic to this thread, I just don't like when people mislead others with info that simply isn't true.
