    SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND PAYMENT; SUBSCRIPTIONS

    Subscription Fees: You can find the current subscription fees and other charges for the Service (the “Fees”) posted on the Site pages where the Service is located.  You agree to pay all subscription Fees and other Fees (including any applicable taxes) incurred in connection with your access to the Service and/or your Service Password (defined below), at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred.  We may change the Fees, or add new Fees, upon prior notice to you either by e-mail or publishing the changes on the Site pages where the Service is located.  You acknowledge and agree that you shall be responsible for reviewing the Service’s schedule of Fees from time to time for changes, and you further agree that changes shall be effective when posted on the Site pages where the Service is located.  NBAMV shall be the seller of record of Service subscriptions for sales tax purposes, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree to pay Us any taxes imposed on the sale of subscriptions or other products or services via the Service, for remission by NBAMV to appropriate taxing authorities. 

     

    Payment:  You authorize Us to automatically bill subscription Fees based on any subscription you purchase to the means of payment (e.g., credit card, PayPal account) you designate during the registration process for the Service or subsequently designate to Us.  You agree to provide Us with a valid means of payment and accurate, complete and updated information required by the subscription registration form.  By submitting your means of payment (e.g., credit card or PayPal account) as the form of payment, you represent and warrant that your use of such means of payment is authorized and that all information that you submit is true and accurate (including, without limitation, credit card and/or account number and expiration date). In doing so, you also authorize Us to charge to your means of payment all amounts payable by you to Us based on the subscription/billing plan you selected, including, but not limited to, all Fees and any applicable taxes We are required to collect. Failure to comply may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your access to the Service. If you want to designate a different means of payment or if there is a change in validity or expiration date, you can change your means of payment and associated account information at http://www.nba.com/allaccess/index.html.

     

    Unable-to-be-processed payments: If We are unable to process your means of payment at any time, your Service account may be immediately suspended or terminated and you will remain responsible for all amounts payable by you to Us. Your agreement with your credit issuer governs use of your credit card and the PayPal user agreement governs your use of the PayPal service.  You must refer to those agreements with respect to your rights and liabilities as, as applicable, a cardholder or PayPal account holder.  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.

     

    Free Trial Period:  We (from time to time in our sole discretion) may choose to offer new users of the Service a free preview period (i.e., period during which the user may access the Service or some part of it without first being charged a subscription fee).  The length of any such period and the additional terms and conditions associated with it shall be displayed proximately to where you are able to register for the free preview period.  Any such additional terms and conditions shall, in addition to this Subscriber Agreement, apply to the free trial period. 

     

    YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME DURING THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD.  OUR CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS ARE HERE http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com.  FOR CERTAIN FREE PREVIEW OFFERS, IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL, THEN, UPON EXPIRATION OF THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD, YOU WILL BE ENROLLED IN THE SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION THAT YOU SELECTED WHEN YOU REGISTEED FOR THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD, AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED (E.G., THE PAYMENT MEANS YOU PROVIDED TO US WILL BE CHARGED) THE FEES APPLICABLE TO THE SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION THAT YOU SELECTED WHEN YOU REGISTERED FOR THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD.  YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL THEN AUTOMATICALLY RENEW (AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE APPLICABLE FEES EACH TIME YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RENEWS) AS DESCRIBED BELOW UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU SUBSEQUENTLY CANCEL IT.  IF YOUR FREE PREVIEW PERIOD IS ONE THAT WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONVERT INTO A SUBSCRIPTION THAT REQURIES THE PAYMENT OF ASSOCIATED SUBSCRIPTION FEES, THIS WILL BE STATED AT THE POINT WHERE YOU REGISTER FOR THE PREVIEW PERIOD.

     

    Subscriptions and periodic billing: There are different types of subscriptions available via the Service.

    Some subscriptions begin when you place your order and continue until terminated as provided in this Agreement, and these subscriptions require you to pay the associated subscription Fees periodically and in advance (for example, for Full Season premium subscriptions, you must pay the associated subscription Fee for each NBA season in advance). For Full Season premium subscriptions, the associated subscription Fee for the first NBA season is payable in advance on the date of purchase.  All subscriptions, with the exception of daily access subscriptions and subscriptions purchased within a mobile or tablet application (e.g., purchased within an app as an “in-app upgrade”), will automatically renew as a Full Season subscription for each subsequent NBA season and the subscription Fee associated with such Full Season subscription becoming due and payable on or around the start of the applicable season, unless we receive notification from you electing to discontinue your subscription before the cancellation deadline stated at http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com.

     

    Daily access subscriptions (if offered and subject to any additional terms and conditions posted where the subscription is offered) begin when you place your order and expire after the period identified on the Service web page where the subscription is ordered. You must pay any associated subscription Fee in advance on the date of order for these subscriptions.

     

    As indicated above, subject to this Agreement and your payment of the associated subscription Fees, certain subscriptions will continue until terminated as provided in this Agreement. This means, for example (and subject to this Agreement and your payment of the associated subscription Fees), that if you purchase any NBA League Pass Broadband subscription, other than a daily access subscription and subscriptions purchased within a mobile or tablet application (e.g., those purchased within an app as an “in-app upgrade”), in a particular NBA season, your subscription will continue as a Full Season subscription for the next NBA season and subsequent NBA seasons (and you will be billed for and required to pay the associated subscription Fee for those seasons) unless we receive notification from you electing to discontinue your subscription before the cancellation deadline stated at http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com.

     

    YOUR RIGHT TO NOTIFY US TO DISCONTINUE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION

     

    You may elect to discontinue your subscription by visiting http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com. Your election will be deemed to have been received one (1) business day after you so notify Us that you want to discontinue your subscription.

     

    Your election to discontinue will take effect for the following NBA season, provided that your election is received by Us before the cancellation deadline stated at http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com. If you elect during an NBA season to discontinue your subscription, you will not receive a refund for the then-current season’s subscription Fees (e.g., if you have purchased a Full Season Pass for the current NBA season and during the current NBA season you elect to discontinue your subscription, your subscription will expire at the end of the current NBA season, but subscription Fees for the Full Season Pass for the current NBA season will not be refunded).

     

    All subscriptions, with the exception of daily access subscriptions and subscriptions purchased within a mobile or tablet application (e.g., those purchased within an app as an “in-app upgrade”) will automatically renew for the following NBA season unless your election to discontinue your subscription is received by Us by the cancellation deadline stated at http://leaguepasssupport.nba.com.

     

     ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  We do not give full or partial refunds for subscriptions that you have purchased regardless of the basis for the refund REQUEST.

     

     You also are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Service through an Internet access provider or other third party service. AS BETWEEN YOU AND US, YOU, AND NOT US, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR MEANS OF PAYMENT (E.G., CREDIT CARD OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT) BY A THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
