No statements will be mailed for the web streaming service. Depending on Your Service Plan, We will bill You for the initial Service Fee when You place Your order as follows:

a) If You choose a pre-paid Service Plan, We will also bill You for the entire Service Fee for the term of the pre-paid Service Plan when You place Your order. If You order a special feature Service (for example, a movie or live sports event), We will charge your credit card on file (or debit a credit balance You have with us); A statement will be mailed to you at least 15 days prior to the expiration of your pre-paid plan, to the billing address of file.  You are responsible for any updates to Your billing address and contact information.  If you do not remit payment by the statement due date, your subscription will be automatically renewed for the month-to-month plan, and the credit card on file will be charged for the plan until you call to cancel the service.   If you do not cancel the Service, your continued receipt of our service will constitute your acceptance of the monthly charge.

b) If You choose a month-to-month subscription, your initial monthly charge will occur on or around day You place Your order, and all subsequent monthly fees will be automatically applied to the payment method used on your original order. If You order special feature Services (for example, a movie or live sports event), We will include the charges in the monthly bill.
