UPC "free" DVB-C converter

A while ago I ordered a "free" DVB-C converter from UPC according to >>this<< offer.

Today I received an email asking me to "confirm" that I´m still using it. Should I not be using it anymore, they'll ask me to return the converter. Should I decide not to return it, they "reserve the right to charge CHF 45 for buying it".

Hrks?! They originally said it's free.

Now, I wouldn't mind confirming that I´m still using it if this was a once off. However they also say that they'll keep asking this every year from now.

What the hell is that all about? Any idea how to permanently stop this?

Re: UPC "free" DVB-C converter

All people with the "free" converter were sent the letter and I believe no there is no way to stop this from happening. Until the UPC procedure changes one would have to confirm every year. Having said that it is a simple 2 code web confirmation!
