Is there a minimum amount of time you have to subscribe to a premium channel?

i.e., can I purchase Showtime for 1 month and then cancel it afterwards, or do I need to have it for at least 3 months?

I believe you have to keep it for a month, or you are charged an early disconnect fee. Other than that if you keep it at least a month you can cancel whenever you want and you will pay a partial fee or get a partial refund.

I think they used to not charge a early disconnect fee but then they realized people were signing up for the channels for just a day or two a month to get the movie/fight/show they wanted to see and then cancelling.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
