Xbox.com update finally allows you to switch off Xbox LIVE auto-renew

The news that Xbox LIVE’s auto-renew can now be turned off by yourself will be music to many people’s ears who have had trouble stopping it over the years.

As part of the update to Xbox.com that also includes updates to friends and video features, Microsoft will now let you stop the automatic renewal of Xbox LIVE without having to phone up the customer service helpline.

Has anyone here incurred extra costs/bank charges because of Microsoft’s policy? Peeps here at PopBucket sure have so we are as glad as you all are for this small but much needed change.
