You agree to provide Us with a valid Designated Payment Method and accurate, complete and updated information required by the subscription registration form. By submitting your Designated Payment Method as the form of payment, you represent and warrant that your use of such Designated Payment Method is authorized and that all information that you submit is true and accurate (including, without limitation, card/account number and expiration date). In doing so, you also authorize Us to charge to your Designated Payment Method, as applicable, all amounts payable by you to Us in U.S. Dollars (except as otherwise set forth above) based on the subscription/billing plan you selected, including, but not limited to, all Fees and any applicable taxes that are not otherwise included within the Fees and that We are required to collect. Failure to comply may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your access to the Service, as determined by NBAP.

Payment Dates:  For each of the League Pass Package and the League Pass Premium Package, the Fees are due and payable either (x) in full on the date of purchase or (y) in the event that We offer an installment plan and You select to pay pursuant to such installment plan, the first installment of the Fees is due and payable in full on the date of purchase (the “Initial Installment Date”) and the Fees for each subsequent installment shall be due and payable on the same day of each subsequent month as the Initial Installment Date or the last day of such month, whichever day occurs earlier (e.g., in the event that your subscription is payable in three installments and your first payment occurred on January 31, your next payment date will be February 28 and your final payment date will be March 31).  For each of the Team Pass Package and the Single Game Package, the Fees are due and payable in full on the date of purchase (together with the League Pass Package and League Pass Premium Package described in the preceding sentence, the “Annual Packages”).  For the NBA TV Package, and, in the event that We offer a monthly League Pass Package or League Pass Premium Package, such League Pass Package and/or League Pass Premium Package (together with NBA TV, the “Monthly Packages”), the Fees for the first month is due and payable in full on the date of purchase (the “Initial Monthly Date”), and the Fees for each subsequent month shall be due and payable on the same day of each such month as the Initial Monthly Date or the last day of such month, whichever day occurs earlier (e.g., in the event your first payment occurred on January 31, your next payment date will be February 28) (such date, the “Monthly Payment Date”).  We will bill your Designated Payment Method on each applicable payment date as set forth above. 

 

Automatic Renewals:  Unless you elect not to participate in the auto-renewal option, (i) your subscription to any Annual Package will automatically renew on approximately September 1 of the next year at either the applicable rate for that year for such Annual Package and (ii) your subscription to any Monthly Package will automatically renew on the Monthly Payment Date at the applicable rate for such Monthly Package.  If you purchase a subscription that includes an introductory free trial period, You authorize Us to automatically bill the Fees (including any renewal Fees) based on any subscription you purchase to the Designated Payment Method upon the conclusion of the free trial period, unless you elect to cancel your subscription upon the conclusion of such free trial period.  To cancel the annual automatic renewal feature, you can send an e-mail to nbasupport@neulion.com, or use the online form found on your "My Account" page.

 

Upgrading a Package:  We currently allow the following upgrades: (i) an upgrade from the League Pass Package to the League Pass Premium Package, (ii) an upgrade from the Team Pass Package to the League Pass Package, (iii) an upgrade from the Team Pass Package to the League Pass Premium Package and (iv) an upgrade from the NBA TV Package to the League Pass Premium Package (each, a “Permitted Upgrade”).  If, at any point, you wish to upgrade your Service pursuant to a Permitted Upgrade, you will be billed for the price difference between the Package types for the billing period in which you upgrade.  (For example, if you purchase a League Pass Package on January 1 and then upgrade to League Pass Premium Package on January 15, you will be billed a prorated monthly rate for the League Pass Premium Package for the period between January 15-31 and you will be billed the full subscription fee for the League Pass Premium Package, prorated as of February 1.)

Unable-to-be-processed payments: If we are unable to process your Designated Payment Method at any time, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate your Service account and you will remain fully responsible for all amounts payable by you to Us. Depending on your Designated Payment Method, your agreement with your Designated Payment Method provider (e.g., your credit/debit card issuer) governs use of your use of the Designated Payment Method.  You must refer to those agreements and terms and conditions with respect to your rights, obligations and liabilities regarding the Designated Payment Method. We reserve the right to continue to collect payment (and to continue to attempt to collect payment) that has not been collected due to technical or other issues.
