Bell ExpressVu says it hasn’t received any customer complaints over automatic renewal of its NHL Center Ice package, despite its similarity to a controversial marketing practice since abandoned by its cable competitors. The satellite TV operator insists the practice is not negative option marketing. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), however, questions its legality in contract law. As for the CRTC, it’s staying clear of the whole issue.
