Proration/Partial charges

If you have received a bill that is different than your regular monthly invoice, it may be due to a pro-rated charge added to your bill. Proration is done when you add new programming to your subscription in the middle of your billing cycle.

Example:

Your billing cycle starts on the 1st of each month. You added an $8 bundle on the 20th of the month. In this case, we will charge you for the 10 remaining days in your billing cycle.


Your prorated charges will be calculated as:
$8 รท 30 (days in a month) = $0.266 (charge per day)
$0.266 x 10 days = $2.66 (prorated charge)



This means you will see a prorated charge of $2.66 on your bill.Details of these charges can be found on Page 3 of your invoice.

FAQ

I did not add a new programming this month, but my bill still shows extra charges.

If you have not added any new any programming change but still see a prorated charge in your invoice, please look for other account changes like:

  • Reconnection from Seasonal break.
  • Equipment purchases
  • Installation of new equipment.


I added a new channel, but my current bill is not reflecting that.

If your invoice was printed before you made those changes, the charges and proration will be reflected in your next bill. Please check the Invoice Date on the first page of your bill to confirm this.
