Brandenburger Verbraucherzentrale sues Disney ++ Doctors concert in Berlin canceled ++ Storms are raging across the country

Dear readers,

Movies, series, sports, music, audiobooks – now you can stream almost anything anywhere, anytime, so you can personalize your TV and music programs. Costs should – that’s how they advertise streaming provider at least – to be and manageable, the collection of monthly payments happens more or less randomly. The Cottbus case now shows that it is not bad to take a closer look.

Streaming platform client Disney + suddenly faced a significant increase in prices. He was going to pay a huge 30% surcharge on his annual subscription, so he turned it on Brandenburg Consumer Center a. This then put the terms of use under a microscope and led to the conclusion that there was “a clear breach of statutory provisions”.

And now? After Disney failed to respond to a warning from a consumer advisory center, consumer ombudsmen prefer it Court. Because: Disney reserves the right to unilaterally and unlimitedly change prices, which prevents the consumer from estimating possible price increases when concluding the contract. My colleague Torsten Gellner made a summary.

The next MAZ update will appear on Monday. Until then, we will of course keep you updated on

I wish you a successful weekend!
