Payment of the fee may be made annually in advance (‘Annual Fee’) or by 12 equal monthly instalments (‘Monthly Instalment Fee’). MBL Season Ticket: You must hold an MBL Season Ticket for the duration of the Subscription. If your MBL Season Ticket is not renewed upon expiry access to the Subscription will be terminated and your obligation to make payment of the Monthly Installment Fee will cease from the first month following the date of termination.
