New to UMC and disappointed already

I just signed up for my free trial a couple of days ago. The issues with the program being watched constantly stopping and then having to go back to play it has been complained about by quite a few users. This has been a complaint for a while. The channel has alot of great movies and series but I will be cancelling after the trial if this cannot be fixed right away. There are too many other apps to watch including Bet+. Bet+ has similar content and I have never had any issues.

Commit diasporans! Stop your 7-day trial dumping

As a Alkebulan diasporan, I’m glad to patronize this streaming service by us for us. I have no issues logging in and signed up from my Roku tv! I Downloaded app on my iPhone 6S+ later and signed in with no issues. The content over the years has improved and grew which is good to see. I had 2 memberships and never had any issues during my first year when they first launched. I’m glad to be back after buckling down on my personal debt freedom plan. It’s nice to unwind and catch a flix with people who look like you after a long day. If we do not support each other, who will? If BLM, support a black owned business today and everyday. Hypocrisy doesn’t look good on anyone.

Good place to watch African American movies but...

This is the hardest app/website to login to and to cancel. I did the free trial and if I decided to keep the account, it was supposed to charge me $4.99 for each month after. I’d never planned to keep watching after the trial, cause I just wanted to see the series Monogamy.
So when my trial was up, I tried to log back in and it wouldn’t let me, thus charging me the $4.99. I eventually had to reset my password like 30 times, to cancel my subscription and I complained and eventually got my money back, too.
I did the trial at the end of November 2018 and canceled it in December 2018.
I’m complaining now, because here I am, in February 2019, finding out that they have been charging me $6.99 ($7.50, with tax), for three months now (December, January and February).
I reset my password again, just to make sure of my account status and just like I thought, it says canceled and no more payments should be charged to me.
Apps like this shouldn’t exist until they know what they’re doing and how not to charge ppl that have already canceled their subscriptions.
I did however enjoy the selections of movies and I loved the series that I initially subscribed for the free trial, for. But the money thing, is an issue that needs to be fixed, ASAP.
