It is possible to cancel an agreement concluded online or by phone with a television service provider without charge and within short elapsed time periods if the provider has not respected certain commitments.
Concluding a contract online or by phone gives you specific rights. These rights are additional to those presented on the pages about:
- cancellation fees for an open-ended contract;
- cancellation fees for a fixed length contract with a device discount;
- cancellation fees for a fixed length contract with no device discount.
