SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES TERMS
In addition to the other terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the terms set forth in this Subscription Services Terms section apply to subscribers who trial and/or purchase Music Choice Subscription Services (for example, Music Choice Karaoke, Music Choice Relax and/or Music Choice PLUS). A subscription to any one or more of such Subscription Services is a “Subscription”:

Registration for the Subscription Services:

To access any of the Subscription Services, you will be required to purchase a Subscription through a Subscription Provider (as defined below); Music Choice does not sell Subscriptions directly to consumers.  In addition, for certain Subscription Services (such as Music Choice PLUS), you will be required to create a Music Choice authorized user profile to establish an account.  Some Subscription Services (for example, Music Choice PLUS) may have multiple Subscription plans (“Plans”) to which you may choose to subscribe.

Create a Subscription Account

In order to establish a Subscription account with Music Choice (an “MC Subscription Account“), you must have an active account with a third party video programming distributor (such as Mediacom, Comcast, Verizon FiOS, DIRECTV , etc.) that has been authorized by Music Choice to provide one or more of the Subscription Services (each, a “Subscription Provider“). The steps required to establish an MC Subscription Account may require you to leave your Subscription Provider’s platform and confirm your information directly with Music Choice.

Your Subscription will be automatically validated each time you sign-in to the applicable Subscription Service(s). However, if you change your Subscription Provider, your current Subscription will terminate. To re-subscribe, you must visit dashboard.musicchoice.com to update your Subscription Provider or contact your new Subscription Provider for assistance.

It is a condition of use of any of the Subscription Services that all the details you provide will be correct, current, and complete and will not violate any law. If a Subscription Provider or Music Choice believes the details you provided are not correct, current or complete or do not meet eligibility criteria as established by Music Choice or your Subscription Provider from time to time, or that you have otherwise violated these Terms of Use or any law, Music Choice and your Subscription Provider each have the right at our sole discretion to suspend, terminate or refuse you access to the Subscription Services, your MC Subscription Account and/or any other features or resources related thereto.

In order to purchase a Subscription through a Subscription Provider, you must have an active account with such Subscription Provider and provide a valid method of payment (a “Payment Method“). Your Payment Method will be processed by such Subscription Provider, not by Music Choice.  Any inquiries related to payments through your Subscription Provider should be directed to your Subscription Provider directly. You are responsible for all charges incurred in connection with your Subscription.  For the avoidance of doubt, Music Choice bears no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to any payment, billing or other disputes between you and the Subscription Provider arising out of any of the Subscription Services.

Authorized Users and Additional Profiles

Once you have created an MC Subscription Account, you may be given, for certain Subscription Services (currently only the Music Choice PLUS Subscription Service) the option to add authorized users (the “Authorized Users“) tied to your MC Subscription Account depending on the Music Choice Plan to which you have subscribed. Music Choice reserves the right to limit the maximum number of Authorized Users (and devices) that you can set up or that can simultaneously access the applicable Subscription Service, in its sole discretion. Authorized Users are limited to members of your immediate family or household only.  Currently, with regard to the Subscription Services, multiple Authorized Users are only available for certain of the Music Choice PLUS Plans as follows:

SINGLE Plan: Access to Music Choice PLUS for one (1) profile – 1 Authorized User can access Music Choice PLUS on a single device at a time

FAMILY Plan:  Access to Music Choice PLUS for three (3) profiles + two (2) Kid’s profiles for children 8 and under with access restricted to a gated area of youth appropriate content(see PROFILES AND USERNAME/PASSWORD section of this Agreement below for additional information regarding Kid’s profiles)

LARGE FAMILY Plan: Access to Music Choice PLUS for six (6) profiles – 6 Authorized Users can access Music Choice PLUS on 6 different devices at the same time

The MC Subscription Account will function as the “main account” for all Authorized Users. EACH AUTHORIZED USER’S VIEWING ACTIVITY MAY BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE MC SUBSCRIPTION ACCOUNT HOLDER, INCLUDING STREAMS BY TITLE, PARENTAL CONTROLS, AND ANY CHANGES TO THE AUTHORIZED USER SETTINGS.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM EACH AUTHORIZED USER OF THIS FEATURE.

You are responsible for all activity by each Authorized User or otherwise occurring under your MC Subscription Account, including the devices that are used to access the Subscription Services.  You understand and agree that Music Choice and/or its Content Providers may impose certain restrictions on the ability of each Authorized User to access Content from different devices and/or simultaneously with other Authorized Users, may require certain reauthorizations, including the need to stream PLUS content from an in-home or in-network IP address every 30 days, and may require that an Authorized User present certain identification (for example, and without limitation, college student(s) may be asked to verify a .edu email for inclusion as an Authorized User for a limited time period (e.g. 4 consecutive years) in Music Choice PLUS Large Family plans), in each case for digital security and other reasons. You and each Authorized User are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password. In addition, to prevent unauthorized access to your MC Subscription Account or the Subscription Services, you and each Authorized User must maintain control over the devices used to access the Subscription Services and not reveal your username and password or Payment Method to any third party. Music Choice and its Subscription Providers shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the use or misuse of your MC Subscription Account.

Payment and Billing – Ongoing Subscription

By creating an account with a Subscription Provider and providing such Subscription Provider with a Payment Method, you agree to pay the Subscription Provider a subscription fee and any applicable taxes and service fees on a designated cycle for the applicable Subscriptions (collectively, the “Subscription Fee“). Subject to the Free Trials, Discounts, and Promotional Offers section below, the first Subscription Fee will be charged to your Payment Method on the date the Subscription Provider confirms your Subscription purchase. Thereafter, the Subscription Fee will be charged to your Payment Method by your Subscription Provider on a recurring basis in accordance with your designated cycle.

Billing Cycle

Your Subscription billing will be processed by your Subscription Provider or its authorized vendor(s). The Subscription Fee will be billed at the time you establish your Subscription and on an ongoing, regular monthly basis unless you cancel your Subscription. Please note that billing cycles may vary. Note that the timing of your billing may change (i.e., in the event of a problem with your Payment Method, such as an expired credit card). You should confirm the applicable billing policies prior to establishing your Subscription.

Unpaid Amounts

Your Subscription Provider reserves the right to retry billing your Payment Method after failed attempts (e.g., if your Payment Method is rejected).   Your Subscription Provider also reserve the right to pursue or permit or another third party to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your Subscription.  Except as specified in any agreement between you and your Subscription Provider, you will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration costs.  For the avoidance of doubt, Music Choice bears no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to any payment, billing or other disputes between you and the Subscription Provider arising out of any of the Subscription Services.

Subscription Price Changes

Each Subscription Provider reserves the right to change the price for a Subscription for any Subscription Service in its sole discretion and will be responsible for communicating any price changes to you in accordance with applicable law.

Updating Payment Method

You may update your Payment Method with your Subscription Provider at any time by accessing your account with such Subscription Provider as allowed by your Subscription Provider.

If at any time your Subscription Provider is unable to charge your Payment Method for the Subscription Fee due to insufficient funds, expired or invalid account details, or otherwise, you remain responsible for the cost of such Subscription Fee.

A change in your Payment Method may result in changes to your prior billing cycle. It is your responsibility to update and maintain the Payment Method associated with your Subscription Fee. In the event your Payment Method is unable to cover the Subscription Fee, each of Subscription Provider and Music Choice reserve the right to suspend your access to the applicable Subscription Service, until such time as the Payment Method has been updated and the Subscription Fee is duly paid.

Cancellation

YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE IT RENEWS IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING CHARGED FOR THE CYCLE’S SUBSCRIPTION FEE, SUBJECT TO YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PROVIDER’S APPLICABLE REFUND POLICY, IF ANY. If you cancel your Subscription, the cancellation will become effective as your Subscription Provider determines.  . You will continue to have access to your Subscription only through the cancellation date as determined by your Subscription Provider. Since you purchased your Subscription through your Subscription Provider, you need to cancel your Subscription directly with such Subscription Provider.

No Music Choice Refunds

REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION BY MUSIC CHOICE. MUSIC CHOICE DOES NOT PROVIDE CREDIT, REFUNDS, OR PRORATED BILLING FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT ARE CANCELLED.  Each Subscription Provider reserves the right to offer refunds, discounts or other consideration in select circumstances at its sole discretion. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make such an offer in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.

Free Trials, Discounts, and Promotional Offers:

The Subscription Services may be made available to you on a free trial basis for a limited time (“Trial Subscription“). The specific duration of the Trial Subscription will be specified in the applicable offer at sign-up. Trial Subscriptions may be limited to new Subscription Services subscribers who have not participated in a trial within a certain period, as specified. Your status as a new subscriber to the applicable Subscription Service(s) will be determined by Music Choice or the applicable Subscription Provider, in their sole discretion. These Terms of Use apply to any Trial Subscription, unless otherwise specified.

At the time of signing up for a Trial Subscription, you must provide a valid Payment Method in order to use the applicable Subscription Services during the Trial Subscription period. Your Payment Method will not be charged during the Trial Subscription period.

UNLESS YOU TIMELY CANCEL THE TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE THE RENEWAL DATE, UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE FOR THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE(S) WILL BE CHARGED TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.

If your Subscription Provider offers you a Trial Subscription or other promotion (e.g., a promotional price) for your Subscription, the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed during your sign-up or in other materials describing the particular promotion.  In the case of promotional pricing, after your promotion period ends, the Subscription Provider will begin billing your Payment Method for your Subscription at the regular Subscription Fee unless you duly cancel before the promotion period ends.  You will not receive notice from Music Choice or your Subscription Provider that your Trial Subscription is about to end unless required by applicable law.

To find additional details about your Trial Subscription, including the date the Trial Subscription ends, please visit dashboard.musicchoice.com for the latest information contained in our records or contact your Subscription Provider directly. This information may also be available on the checkout page before you complete the purchase of your Subscription.
