I am looking at it from a perspective of what a court might rule (since the specter of Christians suing SkyAngel was brought up). $299 for 10 years of service is better than most got.
Mr. Long - the fact that lifetimers received X number of months of service resulting in a bargain rate of $X per month is not relevant here. Lifetime subscribers signed up and paid for a lifetime subscription, not a bargain monthly rate.
Thanks for mentioning your terms were for the life of the satellite. Although they INTENDED to launch their own they certainly would not have guaranteed that they would launch their own - otherwise the term "life of the satellite" would be unneeded.
