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.

Great Program - Horrible Customer Service

The program is good - the customer service you receive is horrible. Cancellation is not as easy as they make it seem. Customer Service just told me "there was nothing more they could do for me". I wouldn't have a job if I responded to a customer in that manner.
