Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

My subscription was through itunes, every time I went to login through my Apple TV or ipad, I had to login again as a first time user. Half the time I would get alerts saying that my subscription was about to expire after paying monthly for the subscription. Whenever, I reached out for support I was placed into this endless loop between itunes and HBONow. HBONow would say contact Apple, Apple has no way for you to contact a person, and every contact avenue they offer takes you right back to HBONOW. I paid for a Subscription for over a year that I probably used for about 2-3 months total.
