On 5-14 I used a freebie to watch Avatar in 1080p. I watched the movie in the evening to the end. The next mourning I went back and skimmed through many scenes checking out 1080p in more depth. When I was done I deleted it. About a month later I noticed it was back in the LIST but only on the box it was purchased from, not on my other two boxes. I deleted it again. Today I noticed it's back. It is in the "resume" position from when I stopped watching it before. There is an option to keep. It says it's good till 10-24. I have a few of questions.

1. Why does this keep showing up after I delete?

2. If I "resume" will I be charged again?

3. If I keep. What exactly am I keeping?

I assume that this just gives me the ability to watch/buy this again until 10-24 even if it becomes unavailable before then....EDIT: I should probably add that this is/was the only PPV I've ever done.

1. Because you did not finish watching the movie.
2. No.
3. What you didn't watch. and the stuff before that.

Possibly. More likely, I think, is just to tempt an "impulse buy" at a later date.

2. No.

I don't know about that... with PPVs, once you start watching you have 24 hours to finish. If you start watching this again (or resume), you should be prompted again asking if you want to buy it because in all likelihood, you will be charged again.

I was thinking the OP bought Hot Bush 3: Natural Nymphos or Chocolate MILF 4 and wanted to delete the evidence before the Mrs got home. The thread would've gotten a lot more attention if that was the case....:lol::lol:

Whoa! My PPVs have always been good for two or three months (can't recall the exact expiration cycle). I've watched many of them multiple times and have never been charged after the initial fee.

This sound the most logical to me.

That is interesting. I'll have to do a bit more research.

The 24 hours applies only to movies. Events will stick around until you delete them. It may also only apply to the HD movies, but I'm not sure. When is the last time you ordered a PPV movie? The 24 hour rule has only been in place for several months now.

Just tell your wife that it is a typo, and it should say girls who eat gum.
