Sounds like a complete rip-off.

It’s a disgrace

Amateur_Wizard says:

Montly fees are a trap in a lot of cases, especially this one. Once off payment is much better imo

ashsufc says:

Only people in Stupidland would pay monthly!

TheGeoffers08 says:

Jesus could she sound any less interested or enthusiastic…. as if “siggggh do i really have to do this”……

Kaipeternicolas says:

Hahah montly $25!?!? That is absolutely ridiculous! This whole subscription thing is getting out of hands!

FastLikeUNO says:

Hell no, this isn’t worth 600 dollars. 180 MAX minus that thermostat.

lettucefire says:

how odd. hive is a british gas product and over here in the uk you just buy each device separately outright and they are fairly cheap.

ECuevas says:

Because people aren’t spending enough money on countless gadgets already. On top of that a contract? Pffft. No thanks.

Daniel R. says:

Only stupid people with more $ than brains will buy this. When a company is this greedy; just stay away & give them an opportunity to face reality.

Oasis S. says:

Monthly fee should 100% be an option.

Louna Guillaume says:

Save frequent besides bury intervention lunch below reasonable sequence.
