Welcome to Bigtv. We are an online subscription service, providing our members with access to motion pictures, television and other audio visual entertainment ("movies & TV shows") streaming over the Internet to certain Internet-connected TV's, computers and other devices ("Bigtv ready devices"). We've put together here some detailed terms and conditions. You should read and understand them as they govern your use of our service.
Privacy and Communications Preferences
By using the Bigtv service, you consent to receiving electronic communications from Bigtv. These communications will include notices about your account (e.g., change in password or Payment Method, confirmation e-mails and other transactional information) and information concerning or related to our service. These communications are part of your relationship with Bigtv and you receive them as part of the Bigtv membership. You agree that any notice, agreements, disclosure or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing.
Membership and Billing
You can find the specific details regarding your membership with Bigtv at anytime by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link.
Your Bigtv membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for one month, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. Free trials may not be combined with any other offers. If you or another member of your household has been a Bigtv member within the last 12 months, you are not eligible to receive a free trial. You must have Internet access and a current valid credit card or debit card, or other accepted payment method ("Payment Method") to use our service.
We will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your membership unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your membership, including monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the "Payment" link on the "My Account" page. Your Payment Method will be authorized for up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your membership has begun. If YOU CANCEL PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL, THERE WILL BE NO CHARGES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. CLICK THE "MY ACCOUNT" LINK AT THE TOP OF ANY BIGTV WEB PAGE FOR CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your membership fee until you cancel. You may cancel your membership at anytime; however, there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships with different limitations. Some of these promotional memberships are offered by third parties in conjunction with the provision of their own products and services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans. Unless otherwise stated differently, month or monthly refers to your billing cycle (See "Billing" below).
If you are eligible, and have signed up for a free trial, your Payment Method will be authorized for up to approximately one month of service during free trials; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period. We may also periodically authorize your card in anticipation of membership or related charges. Membership fees and charges are fully earned upon payment. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link, available at the top of the pages of the Bigtv website. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Your Bigtv membership, which may start with a free trial portion, will continue month- to-month unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's membership fees to your Payment Method. We will bill the monthly membership fee to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). Membership fees are fully earned upon payment.
You may cancel your Bigtv membership at any time. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED MOVIES OR TV SHOWS. To cancel, visit our website and click on "Cancel Membership" on the "My Account" page and follow the instructions for cancellation under the heading "Cancel Membership."
Right to Terminate
We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your use of our service, without notice, for any or no reason whatsoever.
How Our Streaming Service Works
Bigtv is an online subscription service providing its members with access to movies & TV shows streaming over the Internet to Bigtv ready devices. These devices are manufactured and sold by entities other than Bigtv.
Availability. The availability of movies & TV shows to instantly watch will change from time to time. The quality of the display of the streaming movies & TV shows may vary from computer to computer, and device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. Bigtv streams a little bit of data as a buffer each time you start a movie or TV show. Frequently starting and stopping movies & TV shows will result in a minor increase to the amount of data Bigtv streams to you per hour. In most cases this will be less than a few minutes worth. You are responsible for all Internet access charges. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges. Bigtv makes no representations or warranties about the quality of your instant watching experience on your display. You may change the video quality of your instant watching experience by going into the "My Account" link on the website.
For certain membership plans in the United States with limited hours of instant watching, any unused instant watching time will not roll-over to your next period or otherwise accumulate. If you reach your watch instantly limit while a selected movie or TV show is playing, you are able to complete that movie or TV show provided that you continuously watch it to completion. The number of movies & TV shows you are able to watch instantly during each billing period depends on the length of each movie or TV show you select and whether you watch them to completion. Any repeated instant watching of a movie or TV show, in whole or in part, will count towards your total watch instantly time.
Start Time: The time it takes to begin watching a movie or TV show instantly will vary based on a number of factors, including your location, available bandwidth at the time, the movie or TV show you have selected and the configuration of your Bigtv ready device. For example, high-speed action scenes or special effects at the opening of a movie or TV show may slightly delay its start time. In addition, you must be connected to the Internet throughout the watch instantly experience.
Device Limitations: YOU MAY INSTANTLY WATCH ON UP TO SIX UNIQUE AUTHORIZED BIGTV READY DEVICES. YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO INSTANTLY WATCH SIMULTANEOUSLY ON ONLY ONE SUCH DEVICE AT ANY GIVEN TIME. You may instantly watch simultaneously on more than one Bigtv ready device within your household. The number of devices and concurrent streams may change without notice to you. For certain limited membership plans in the United States, your available Bigtv ready device may be limited to personal computers.
Geographic Limitation: You may instantly watch a movie or TV show through the Bigtv service only in geographic locations where we offer our service. The content that may be available to watch will vary by geographic location. Bigtv will use technologies to verify your geographic location.
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT: BY USING OUR SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE (1) TO THE BIGTV SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT AS SUCH MAY BE AMENDED OR ADDED TO FROM TIME TO TIME AND (2) TO RECEIVE, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE OR PROMPTING, UPDATED VERSIONS OF THE BIGTV AND RELATED THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOREGOING TERMS, DO NOT USE OUR SERVICE.
In response to requests from content providers, or due to technical limitations, or for any reason in our sole and absolute discretion, and without prior notice to you, some or all movies &TV shows may not be watched, or may cease to be available for watching instantly, through our service on some Bigtv ready devices.
Features & Functionality
Please note that only one Facebook account can be connected to each Bigtv account. All Bigtv account activity will be posted automatically to the Facebook account that is connected to Bigtv. If you have authorized more than one member of your household to use your Bigtv account, it is possible that their Bigtv activity may be posted to your Facebook account or be visible to your Facebook friends using the Bigtv service.
While we hope that you find the Facebook Connect feature to be a great way to share information, including discovering new movies & TV shows, you may nonetheless disconnect your accounts at any time by clicking on the "My Account" link, selecting the "Manage Facebook Connect" link (located in the Preferences section) and then selecting "Disconnect." Facebook may also offer ways to manage the information you share with Bigtv. See the Facebook website for details.
We permit you to post reviews of movies &TV shows available through the Bigtv service. We do not regularly review the content posted on the Bigtv website; however, we reserve the right to reject, remove or edit such content at anytime without notice. Reviews should not be posted that contain: harsh, profane or discriminatory language; illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory or otherwise objectionable content; URLs, phone numbers, mailing or e-mail addresses, personal attacks on the movie's or TV show's creative personnel; misleading information regarding the origin of the content; or a discussion of Bigtv policies or services. Please click on the "Reviews" link that appears on the Bigtv website for a link to guidelines for writing and posting member reviews. You understand and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, review the content and may delete or remove it (without notice) in our sole and absolute discretion, for any reason or no reason. Please also see "Use of Information Submitted" below.
WHEN YOU HAVE SUBMITTED A REVIEW, WE WILL DISPLAY YOUR RATING OF MOVIES & TV SHOWS AND YOUR CITY AND COUNTRY LOCATION GIVEN AT SIGN UP. BY SUBMITTING A REVIEW, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE CONSENTING TO THE RELEASE OF ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED IN YOUR REVIEW, INCLUDING YOUR RATING OF A MOVIE OR TV SHOW, AND YOUR CITY AND COUNTRY TO A PUBLIC FORUM, INCLUDING OTHER MEMBERS OF, AND VISITORS TO, THE BIGTV SERVICE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR REVIEWS, CITY AND COUNTRY TO BE SHARED IN A PUBLIC FORUM, DO NOT USE THE REVIEW FEATURE.
Anyone who participates in the Review feature is automatically given an anonymous screen name ("nickname") and a generic avatar photo to represent them in public. You can update your screen name or photo/image avatar at any time, as often as desired, to identify yourself in connection with your account profile. We supply this pseudonym on your behalf so that any presented information is not personally identifiable. YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO UPDATE THIS AUTOMATIC PSEUDONYM WITH A PSEUDONYM OF YOUR CHOICE, OR EVEN SUPPLY YOUR REAL NAME, BUT BY DOING SO YOU ARE CHOOSING TO DISCLOSE YOUR IDENTITY IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR REVIEWS AND RATINGS AND OTHER FORMS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ON OUR WEB SITE.
In addition, photos or images that you choose to post to your profile must be owned entirely by you and cannot contain the images of, or owned by, any third party, and cannot be infringing, vulgar, obscene, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable. Like the content of your review itself, you understand and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, review any photos, images or pseudonyms you create and may delete or remove them (without notice) in our sole and absolute discretion, for any reason or no reason. Please also see "Use of Information Submitted" below.
If you no longer wish to have your reviews publicly posted, you may delete them by going into the "My Account" link on the website and selecting "Reviews."
Use of the Reviews feature is for your personal, non-commercial use and is at your own option and risk.
The Reviews feature may change without notice to you and the degrees of associated information sharing and functionality may also change without notice.
The member who created the Bigtv account and whose Payment Method is charged is referred to here as the Account Owner. The Account Owner has access and control over the Bigtv account. The Account Owner's control is exercised through use of the Account Owner's password and therefore to maintain exclusive control, the Account Owner should not reveal the password to anyone. In addition, if the Account Owner wishes to prohibit others from contacting Bigtv Customer Service and potentially altering the Account Owner's control, the Account Owner should not reveal the Payment Method details (e.g.,, last four digits of their credit or debit card, or their email address if they use PayPal) associated with their account.
Members from certain countries may have access to RSS feeds as a convenient way to pass information about your Bigtv account or that is publicly available on the Bigtv site to your RSS reader or an RSS-associated website of your choice. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It allows information to be published in a standard XML format that can be accessed via a URL. Bigtv may also choose, at any time, to provide feeds in other formats, such as Atom. All use of the RSS and other feeds ("Feeds"), including obtaining a Feed from the Bigtv website or receiving it into an application or website or displaying the content received from such Feeds, is at your own option and risk. You acknowledge and agree that you are consenting to the information about your account being transferred to the location of the Feed as enabled by you and that your use of a Feed may cause personally identifying information to be associated with you, even if such information is not provided by the Feed.
Account Access; Identity Protection
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account and to help administer the Bigtv service, Bigtv implements technology that enables us to recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification when you revisit the Bigtv service. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the truth and accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account.
You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your Bigtv ready device. If you disclose your password to anyone or share your account and/or devices with other people, you take full responsibility for their actions. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a Bigtv ready device, you should logout and/or deactivate the device before doing so. Similarly, if your Bigtv ready device is lost or stolen, please deactivate the Bigtv ready device. If you fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may access the Bigtv service through your account and may be able to access certain of your account information. To deactivate a device, go to the "My Devices" link on the "My Account" page.
If you find that you're a victim of identity theft and it involves a Bigtv account, you should notify Customer Service. Then, you should report this instance to all your card issuers, as well as your local law enforcement agency. Also, you should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. Providing your information in response to these types of communications can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the Bigtv website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official. Bigtv reserves the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. Bigtv is not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of Bigtv or by the automated processes of Bigtv.

Claims of Copyright Infringement
It is the policy of Bigtv to respect the intellectual property rights of others. Bigtv does not condone the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of movies, TV shows, or other copyrighted content. If you believe your work has been reproduced or distributed in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or are aware of any infringing material available through the Bigtv service, please notify us by completing the claims form found here.
Please note that we will not be able to respond to customer service or other unrelated issues submitted through the copyright claims form above. For queries that are not related to copyright matters, please access the "Help" page.
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Bigtv, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Bigtv should be addressed to: China Content LLC, PO Box 4521, San Mateo, CA 94404 ("Notice Address"). If Bigtv elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Bigtv, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Bigtv and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Bigtv may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Bigtv or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Bigtv receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Bigtv and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. (If you reside outside of the United States, any arbitration hearings will take place in your country of residence at a location reasonably convenient to you, but will remain subject to the AAA Rules including the AAA rules regarding the selection of an arbitrator). If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Bigtv's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Bigtv did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Bigtv will pay you the amount of the award or US$1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND BIGTV AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Bigtv agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
