My Trial Ran in the background

I had early access on my xbox one as I'm sure all of you guys do,
I played like 5 hours.
Then while watching Netflix I had it come up saying
"Your trail has ended, do you wish to purchase the game?"

Kinda bummed that I've not had 10 hours on it, anyone else had this issue of it running in the background?

    Absolutely. You have to exit it to be sure. Most games will terminate the game you're playing currently. Most apps (like Netflix) will not.

    @heavymcd

    First time on EA Access - just to confirm you quit the game to stop the trial timer, or have to close the Access app as well?

    Cheers

    Yes @Sercs , it's a 'school boy error' but then I seem to recall dealing with some your issues in the beta section a long while back.

    Thought it was obvious you had to close the game properly?

    I've always quit the app, signed out and turned my xbox off just to make sure.
