I noticed one of these on the UK National Lottery site recently. It asks you how many weeks you want to play for and defaults the choice to "continuously via direct debit"

Direct debits are remarkably easy to cancel though. No need to find the place you subscribe to, just call your bank, done. Bank required to refund in the event of an incorrect charge, with no time limit.

Much, much safer for recurring payments than continuous charge authorisation on a credit card where you have to contact the charger to cancel (or wait for your card to expire).
