50% more for 50% less

Sorry to continue the gripping about the price hikes but I've just realized basic users like I am are now paying 50% more for 50% less.

I thought I wasn't getting the 'audio review' podcast because of the Spring Festival holiday, but now I see that's no longer available with a basic subscription.  This is extremely disappointing as I found it an essential part of each lesson. It's where the entertainment ended and the study really happened.

Really, this is too much -- a 50% increase and half the number of podcasts (actually it's a two thirds reduction as the stand along dialogue is also not available to bacis subscribers). Also, I didn't see this reduction in service mentioned in any pitch about the new pricing scheme. I'm sure you wouldn't try to sneak that one.  All I can say is 哎呀!

Is it too late is ask for a refund for the extra year I signed on for.
