Please be aware that GCTV subscriptions are self-serviced and can be managed from the "My account" section on GCTV when logged in via your web browser. The GCTV subscription  will renew every year/month depending on your selected product.

By clicking the 'Submit payment and/or Pay with Paypal' button, clients agree to the Global Champions Website Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and agree that their pass will begin immediately after completing their payment, and that because of this they will not be eligible for a full refund by withdrawing from this contract unless they end their subscription in the 'My Account' section before the auto renew date. Clients will automatically be charged the pass fee to their chosen payment method until they decide to cancel their subscription/contract.

In case a client canceled a GCTV monthly plan, the subscription will automatically end in the month after the last payment was done and no extra money will be charged. So, they can still access the GCTV content until that specific day of the month. The same thing counts for the GCTV Annual Passes, that will expire a year after the day of the payment has been done.

If GCTV increases the monthly fee in the future, we will provide you notice. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use the GCTV Service after the price change takes effect, you accept the new price.
