Parties entered into a fixed-term 26-month cable television services provision contract. 5 days before the end of the contract, the defendant (the company providing cable television services) informed that their contract term was about to end. The plaintiff (the consumer) did not reply until after the end of the contract term. The contract contained a term automatically extending the contract for an indefinite amount of time if the consumer did not indicate otherwise, therefore, it was automatically extended. Because of this, the contract provided that the plaintiff had to notify the defendant at least 30 days’ in advance before termination, had to return the cable television equipment and was obliged to pay the defendant in full for the services provided before the date of termination of the contract specified in the notification letter. The plaintiff refused to pay the defendant and refused to return the cable television equipment because he believed some of their contract terms were unfair, so he decided to go to court. First Instance Court dismissed the action. The Appellate Court left the decision of the First Instance Court unchanged.
