Your Order constitutes an offer to us, to subscribe for the Service. We make a note of any Orders made by you. All Orders are subject to acceptance by us. We will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your Order. Please note that this does not constitute acceptance by us. The contract for purchase of the Subscription is formed when we send you an email containing confirmation that your Subscription is live which we will do following receipt of payment for the Subscription via World Pay.

Alternatively you can purchase a subscription to LBC Catch Up via the iTunes App store, operated under separate iTunes App Store terms and conditions.

If you cancel no payment will be taken from you.

Payment can be made via our payment partner World Pay, by credit or debit card only.
