I have only had satellite since January and I ordered casino royal with the remote, on pay per view. I have no phone line attached to the receiver.

as of now, according to my online account I have not been charged. And my understanding was that you couldn't order PPV with the remote anyway (with no phone line)

when or how will I be charged? If I keep ordering pay per view and not getting charged, is this going to be one of those things that, in like, two or three years from now they'll say "Oh you've ordered 50 movies, please pay us the $250 you owe us" ?

Once you connect your phone line it will call home.

You can only accumulate so many charges before your card fills up and
then you won't be able to order any more.
