Did you have to phone to start it or did the channels automatically come on? If they automatically came on and they then try to charge you for not cancelling, I think they'd be on dodgy ground.
If it's one of those free trials where you have to phone up to start it and are worried that you'll forget, why not cancel at the same time
. That's what I did when I got a free upgrade to the Family Pack years ago.
I think that these promotions work on the idea that people won't cancel due to forgetfulness or inertia as much as showcasing what's on offer to tempt customers to subscribe.
I'd be very surprised if Sky wasn't behind and funding this initiative. The take up of Sky Moves is very low on VM.
