I should not be back on contract

I have been with Telstra and Foxtel for at least 20 years and have been off contract for years. I have just changed my Foxtel plan and find out that I am now back on contract. I do not want to be on contract again, and was never advised that changing my plan would put me back. I believe there was a recent case about this same matter and the lady went to the Ombudsman and it was decided that you have no right to put back on contract. Please remove my contract.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
