How do I check if I’m in contract or out of contract?
My TV+/HomeHub+ plan is still in contract. Can I get an additional TV+ box at $5.05/month?

Why does my bill have part-month (pro-rated) charges for TV+ box rental?
Part-month (pro-rated) charges will apply if your TV+/HomeHub+ contract does not end exactly on the last day of your bill cycle. For example:
New rate effective date: 1 July 2022
TV+/HomeHub+ contract end date: 15 September 2022
Bill cycle: 12th of the month – 11th of the following month
On your bill for 12 September 2022 to 11 October 2022, you will see part-month (pro-rated) charges for your TV+ box rental.
- The charges for 12 September to 15 September will be based on the old rate ($5.05/month) because you have rate protection till the end of your contract.
- The charges for 16 September to 11 October will be based on the new rate ($5.96/month).
