If your Viu Paid Service subscription begins on a day not contained in any subsequent month(s), we may change the Applicable Billing Date(s) to such day(s) as we deem appropriate (for example: if you subscribed on the 31st day of December, we may bill you on the 31th of January and the 28th or 29th of February, as applicable). By providing your payment details, you consent to being charged on the applicable recurring basis using these payment details until you cancel your Viu Paid Service subscription.

The length of the billing cycle will depend on your account’s existing subscription and the Applicable Billing Date may vary depending on your selected Payment Gateway.

You are therefore advised to refer to the respective terms and conditions before payment details are provided to such third parties and confirmed thereafter. In this regard, we shall not be responsible for the information shared with such third parties and will not be held liable for any damages, loss and/or expenses that you may face by doing so.

You are advised to refer to the relevant terms and conditions before payment details are provided to such Payment Gateway(s). We shall not be responsible for the information shared with such Payment Gateway(s) and will not be held liable for any damages, loss and/or expenses that you may suffer by doing so.

You authorise us to continue billing on the basis of your given payment details and you remain responsible for any unsettled amount.
