below is part of an email I received from Digital Theatre on Septemeber 11th. Nothing about a 10 year cut off date. Obviously I don't want to get involved in the "free" subscription so when I have time I will contact them and take the manual option. More will be revealed.
"It was never our intention to deny you access to productions that you have already paid for. For customers who have previously purchased productions with us there are currently two options available for you at present:
You can take advantage of our free subscription, obtaining access to your previously purchased productions as well as our entire catalogue You don't take advantage of our free subscription, and we can manually apply the previous purchases to your account"
Good times and bum times I've seen them all and my dear, I'm still here!
Well this is all quite frustrating... we all seem to be getting slightly different details. I've just had a different response, and it seems not everything they had is even currently available to them!
If you log in to your account, you will now see that you have access to your previously purchased productions. [...]
You may notice that your productions are listed as rentals in your production history, they are available for you to watch for the foreseeable future, and they will be automatically renewed when they expire in 10 years' time. [...]
Please accept my apologies as I was not able to restore all of them. Your copy of Merrily We Roll Along will be restored in the near future as we are still restoring access to certain productions on the site. We do not have an exact date as to when this will be completed, but rest assured we will be restoring them as soon as possible.
