5. BILLING POLICIES; PAYMENTS FOR SERVICES; FEES
A. Payments. You agree to pay all prices, fees and/or charges billed for Services, as well as all taxes that are now or in the future assessed in connection with any Services that you receive from us. You acknowledge and agree that such prices, fees and/or charges may include, without limitation, reimbursement charges for certain taxes and/or governmental fees imposed on DISH and/or one or more of its affiliates. Unless you prepay for all Services as a Pre-Pay Promotion customer, we will bill you monthly in advance for most Services and in arrears for other Services (including, without limitation, pay-per-view ordered by you or anyone who uses your Equipment).
If you look at your bill, it will clearly show you the time period the charge is for.
We would hate to see you leave the DISH Family. I would be happy to take a look at your current billing and see what options we have available for you. Can you please send us a Private Message with your phone/account number and 4 digit PIN? You can do this by clicking the mail icon on the top right corner of the page and click New Message. You will need to type in my username in the Send To field.
