Please read this User Agreement before subscribing for the Services. You acknowledge that you have read and understood and agree with these conditions now and every time you use the Services, and you accept any revised version.

In clicking on the “Continue” button, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with H&C to purchase the Services. The contract is conditional on payment being authorised by your card issuer and is at all times subject to this User Agreement.

General Description of the Services.

H&C Services are available on a subscription basis with a monthly or annual rolling subscription. Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each period unless you unsubscribe (see below How do I Unsubscribe?).

To access the Services online, go to https://horseandcountry.tv/subscribe/.

To access the Services on Apple TV and Android TV, download the application from the iTunes store or the Android App Store.

H&C Services are offered via Roku and Amazon Fire as an à la carte channel that can be added to your subscription.

As an Amazon Prime customer in the UK, Germany or Austria, you can add H&C TV as an à la carte channel to your Amazon Prime Video channels service.

When is the Subscription Contract Formed?

By completing the subscription process, you are entering into a contract. The minimum term of the contract is one month. After one month your contract will automatically become a rolling contract and you will be free to cancel it at any point if you should so wish.  If you subscribe to the annual contract, your subscription will renew after one year, and every 12 months thereafter.  Whenever you cancel you are liable to pay the subscription amount (“Subscription Payment”) due for the current subscription period.

H&C may also offer certain Content via the purchase of an access pass (“Event Pass”) that is of a fixed duration.  This may provide access to coverage of a certain live event for the duration of that event or provide access to a predetermined bundle of Content for a fixed period of time.

Unless otherwise agreed you will be charged for the Services from the date your subscription is enabled to receive the Services under this Contract.

You must pay us for your Subscription Payment or Pass in advance.  For Direct Debit, Debit and Credit Card payments, or other payment types including PayPal and iDeal, we will collect the amount due for your Subscription Payment automatically from your account each month. Payment for Event Passes must also be received in advance of gaining access to the relevant Content.

We may change your Subscription Payment at any time by giving you at least one month’s notice.

We may also charge any other payment due under this Contract under your Direct Debit, Debit, or Credit Card instructions together with any other payments that you agree we may charge under that instruction.

We may alter your Direct Debit, Debit or Credit Card instruction if your Subscription Payment changes for any reason.

If you have missed any payments you owe to us, we can suspend provision of the Services without giving you notice. If we are unable to collect a payment you will be given notice and a period of seven (7) days to rectify the problem. During the next seven (7) days, we will try to collect the payment again, and if the payment is not accepted within that period, the subscription will be cancelled and the access to the Service removed.

You have a statutory right to withdraw within 14 days of signing up the service. However, you acknowledge that you agreed to the immediate access of the digital content upon sign-up.  If you access any digital content on the service, you forfeit your right to cancel and receive a refund during the cooling-off period.

Our Rights to Cancel.

We can cancel your agreement with us (or any part of it) at any time.

If we cancel your agreement with us (or any part of it) after you have paid to use the Services, we will give you as much advance notice as is reasonably practicable and, at our sole discretion, you will either:

have access to that part of the service to which the payment relates for the remainder of your usage period; or
be issued a refund for any usage period remaining after the date of termination.

In any event, we may immediately suspend or restrict your use of all or any part of the Services and/or Content without refunding or compensating you if:

you fail to make a payment you owe us or if your Payment Method fails after going through our retry attempts;
you breach the terms of this User Agreement, although for non-serious breaches we will first give you an opportunity to put things right which you will need to do within 7 days;
we suspect or believe that you’ve committed or may be committing fraudulent activity against us or against any other person or organization through your or their use of the Services or Content, for example, you have copied our streams on to another website;
you have acted towards our staff or agents in a way which we reasonably consider to be inappropriate or unacceptable and sufficiently serious to justify restricting or ending your use of the Services;
you purchase an Event Pass or subscription using a virtual proxy network;
you use the Services in a manner that may negatively influence the reputation and/or business of H&C TV Ltd, our affiliates, our commercial partners, any Payment Processors and/or any other third party who is performing services on our behalf in relation to the service; or
it is not reasonably avoidable due to technical or operational reasons which are beyond our reasonable control.

Price information.

Prices displayed on the website, apps and third-party platforms prevail at all times.  Although we try to ensure that all prices are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of your subscription, we will inform you as soon as possible. You will have the option of reconfirming your subscription at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. We will refund you in full if you cancel the order and have already paid.

Payments.

The total cost of any Subscription or Event Pass you purchase directly from us will be charged as specified in the “Subscription” tab on your “Account” page which can be accessed by logging in via the login box on the right-hand side of our website. A breakdown of the cost of your Subscription or Event Pass will be set out in the email that you receive from us on subscription or purchase of an Event Pass and this breakdown will set out the price, including any taxes and/or other transaction fees that may have been applied to your purchase (if any).

In some cases, your payment date may change, for example if you paid for a subscription to the service began on the 31st of any month and the following month only has 30 days in it. To see your next payment date, click on the “Manage Account” tab on your “Account” page which can be accessed by logging in via the login box on the right-hand side of our website.

To use the Services you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Local tax charges may vary depending on the Payment Method used. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

You can update your Payment Methods by going to the “Account” page. We may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).

We use other companies (“Payment Processors”) to process credit card transactions or other payment methods. During the sign-up process, you will need to provide certain information that will allow our Payment Processors to collect payments on our behalf and you authorise such Payment Processors to collect payments on our behalf. If a payment fails, the relevant Payment Processors will try to collect payment again but if they are unable to process a payment you will not be able to use/access the part of the service that the failed payment relates to. The information you provide during the sign-up process will be stored on your account with us, including details of your Payment Method.

Payments made via third parties such as Roku or the Apple Appstore are governed by their terms and conditions and queries should be directed to the third party itself.

Free Trials, Promotions and Discounts.

Your subscription may start with a free trial, discount or other promotional offer (“Promotional Period”). The duration of the Promotional Period of your subscription will be specified during sign-up and is intended to allow new members and certain former members to try the service.

Eligibility for any Promotional Period is determined by H&C at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the Promotional Period and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment or an account email address used with an existing or recent subscription to determine eligibility. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.

We will charge the membership fee for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method at the end of the Promotional Period unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the Promotional Period. To view the membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the “Manage Account” link on the “Account” page.

Managing Your Account.

How do I unsubscribe?

Passwords and Account Access.

The subscriber who created the account and whose Payment Method is charged (the “Account Owner”) has access and control over the account and the devices that are used to access our service and is responsible for any activity that occurs through the account. To maintain control over the account and to prevent anyone from accessing the account (which would include information on viewing history for the account), the Account Owner should maintain control over the devices that are used to access the service and not reveal the password or details of the Payment Method associated with the account to anyone. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account.
