I am extremely disappointed that Netflix has decided to pass on Terra Nova after FOX cancelled the series. I would have possibly put some good faith back into Netflix again and resubscribed if they would have saved the show. At least I just cancelled my membership with them this week and this is one of the main reasons why I did so. Which has been happening a lot to Netflix lately because of the how fiasco with them not too long ago, them splitting their service and networks not renewing with them.

It is not all Netflix’s fault though, you also have to blame FOX for actually deciding to cancel it after taking a few months to decide what they were going to do with it. It is really upsetting seeing how it is a great show and people that love the show would love to know what happens next season and so forth till it has ended. Not only that but we all really want to know what the Badlands are, what is there, and how it all came to be.

There is a lot that Fox could have done to cut costs, other shows have either done it or have survived with such ratings. Then there is advertising, for a show to survive you kind of have to advertise the show exists. I only saw a limited amount of advertising of it but at least more than other shows. They could have even gone as far as putting up Terra Nova posters in Museum; unless they did that. I hope some network decides to pick up Terra Nova, it would be nice.

MajorNelson made a post a few days ago on how you can turn off automatic renewal of your Xbox Live Gamertag. This saves you so much time since you will not have to call Microsoft/Xbox Live Support. So forget canceling, turn this off and what will happen is that your Gamertag will just turn into a Silver membership instead of Gold.

Sign into and click “My Account Section” then from there click the “Membership Level link“. You will then see text saying “Automatic Renewal: ON”. Now click the “ON” link and it will bring you to a page where you can turn it OFF. Select off and click next to finish the process. If you would like to turn them back on, just click the OFF link and go through the process again.

My suggestion? Just pay for the yearly membership no matter what you are doing. Unless you are using cards or cards from others there then sure, turn off automatic renewal so it does not charge your card. Otherwise, to those paying monthly fees, even if you barely game, in the long run you save. But hey, do what you want in the end, not my money.
