Subscription Fees do not include data costs that are dependent on how much and how you download content and your agreement with your provider. Please contact your ISP or carrier network provider about these costs.
You must ensure, before you subscribe to the Service, that your Internet connection speed is appropriate for streaming audio-visual content and that your personal computer, tablet, mobile devices and operating system are compatible and satisfy all other technical requirements as set out at the Help Page of the Service. You must create an account and have an active subscription to access this service with your device (Registered Device).

Subscription packages and fees
Residential or non-commercial subscribers can subscribe to the Service by purchasing one of the following Watch AFL Passes at watchafl.com.au:
Watch AFL Weekly Pass
Watch AFL Monthly Pass
Watch AFL 12-Month Pass
any other Watch AFL Pass for a time period specified by FOX SPORTS from time to time,
(each a Subscription Period).
The price for each Subscription Period will be displayed at the time of purchase including, where applicable, any introductory pricing for a specified period (Subscription Fee). You must pay the Subscription Fee in advance of each Subscription Period.
Weekly, Monthly and 12-Month Passes for the Service will automatically renew, unless you cancel your subscription through your account at least 48 hours prior to your renewal date. This means if you do not cancel by this time we will automatically renew your membership for the relevant Subscription Period and your nominated account will be charged upon confirmation of purchase as set out below:
Watch AFL Weekly Pass: Automatically debited every 7 days.
Watch AFL Monthly Pass: Automatically debited every month.

Unless otherwise stated, renewal terms are for the specific period assigned to your selected subscription and at the relevant Subscription Fee (which FOX SPORTS may change in its sole discretion subject to providing reasonable written notice to the subscriber).
If you subscribe to the Service and you wish to cancel your auto-renewal or change your subscription, you can do so from your computer, tablet or mobile device in the ‘My Profile’ section of watchafl.com.au. Cancellation of your auto-renewal will only be effective at the end of the current Subscription Period you have selected and you will continue to have access to the Service until the end of the relevant period. No pro-rata refunds will be provided to customers that cancel during an active Subscription Period. If you have not cancelled your subscription 48 hours prior to your renewal date, we will (and you authorise us to) charge your subscription fee to the credit card/bank account you provided upon initial sign up.
If you want to upgrade your Subscription Period (for example, from a Monthly Pass to a 12-Month Pass), you will need to cancel your existing subscription and wait until your active Subscription Period ends before being able to make that change.
FOX SPORTS may offer free trial periods to the Service from time to time. During a free trial period, you will not be required to pay any Subscription Fee. Please note that your credit card may be charged a small nominal amount to verify your credit card but this verification charge will be refunded without you needing to take any further action. You may cancel your free trial subscription any time up to 48 hours prior to the end of the free trial period. If you do not cancel your free trial subscription by that time, you will be charged the Subscription Fee in accordance with the Subscription Period that you selected during your initial registration for the free trial, as set out in clause 13.
No refunds will be given for incorrect choice or change of mind unless at the sole discretion of FOX SPORTS. If you are entitled to a refund at law or FOX SPORTS elects to provide a refund, the payment will be processed according to the below terms:
If the application fee was paid via credit card or Paypal then the refund can only be processed back to that same credit card from which the payment originated.
Please allow the office up to fourteen (14) days to confirm your payment and issue the refund.
