If you request to view a programme (probably a film), which is chargeable, do you get a warning or is it possible to inadvertently incur costs ?

The Sky engineer told me that you should get two warnings before accepting, but people on the Sky forum dispute this .

(Edit won't allow me to amend the typing error in the title)

    It's perfectly obvious that you are being charged and you have to agree. Indeed, it's possible to further prevent "inadvertent" PPVs by setting PIN protection for PPVs for anything more than £0.00.

    I do think Sky are crafty with PPVs on "Showcase", as they happily sit Sky Store side-by-side with non chargeable material.

    Thank you.

    How can someone 'inadvertently' agree to view, if they have ample warnings ?Just being dozy ?

    They can't, unless they just click through without reading...
