How does billing for HBO work? We don't have it and I only want to get HBO for about ten days so I can record and watch their Hard Knocks Football show. If it's $16 per month and I only have it for a week or so, would I just be charged approx $4?

Also, are there any charges for signing up for as well as cancelling HBO?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, if you get hbo the will charge you a prorated charge for this month and a full charge for next month. When you cancel the will rebate you the cash for the day you did not use. There is a $5 downgrade charge so in the end it will cost approx. $9. Right now you can get 3 months of hbo and starzs for free if you reup your contract to a new 24 month one. If you do not mind a new contract this would be the best way to handle this because it would be free.

Well, you'd still have the $5 downgrade fee to drop HBO/Starz after the promo, right?
