(b) Content Availability. HDTV service content is only available in Canada. All programming is subject to availability. Sporting events and other programming may be sometimes be subject to “blackouts” in your service area due to copyright or other reasons. Some programming may not be available for viewing from a location other than your service address, or on more than one device simultaneously, due to content rights.

RALLY will not refund charges or credit you for content restrictions, blackouts or temporary service interruptions. 


(c) Data Usage. You acknowledge that when using the HDTV Service with any internet connection other than your RALLY Internet Service internet connection (e.g. Wi-Fi other than your home Wi-Fi, public Wi-Fi or a mobile network), the HDTV Service will use data.

(d) Limitation on set-top boxes. Unless otherwise advised by us, if you subscribe to RALLY HDTV Service, you may activate a maximum of 10 set top boxes on your account at any time. 


25. RALLY’s Home Phone Service 

(a) The Home Phone Service may include local telephone line(s) and/or a variety of long distance plans. Home phone features are subject to change without notice, and all features may not be available in all areas. The local phone line service requires a broadband Internet connection and a Customer supplied touch tone enabled telephone set to be connected to RALLY’s Home Phone Service Equipment. International calling rates are posted on www.rally.ca. and are subject to change without notice. 


(b) Not all home alarm systems are compatible with RALLY’s Home Phone Service. Please check with your home alarm system service provider prior to cancelling your current home phone service or ordering RALLY’s Home Phone Service. RALLY’s Home Phone Service features may be different than the features offered by your current home phone provider. If you are not satisfied with the features available with RALLY’s Home Phone Service, please do not order the Service. Legacy end-points such as Analog door entry phones, elevator phones, point-of-sale machines, faxes, modems, mail/post machines, etc. may not be compatible with RALLY’s Home Phone Service. RALLY is not responsible for any incompatibility issues. The Home Phone Service will not work in the event of a power outage. 


(c) Porting. Do not cancel your current home phone service until RALLY has confirmed in writing to you that your phone number has been successfully ported to RALLY. Cancelling your current home phone service prior to such confirmation may result in the loss of your current telephone number. Prior to RALLY porting your number, RALLY will require certain information from you, including the applicable service address and your current home phone number, if any. RALLY may require a copy of your current home phone bill. Any incorrect or incomplete information may cause a delay in porting your number. Porting typically takes ten (10) to fifteen (15) business days to complete; transfers may take up to six (6) weeks. RALLY will make reasonable efforts to port or transfer numbers in a timely manner and in accordance with these estimates, however unforeseen circumstances may impact these timelines and RALLY will not be liable for any delay. Wireless numbers cannot be ported. There will be an interruption in your home phone service on the day of porting. You cannot port a number if another porting request for that number is currently active. Distinctive ring, Primary InterExchange Carrier Freeze, or a carrier charge restriction must be removed prior to porting your number. A “no porting” or “frozen” subscriber agreement with your existing service provider will block RALLY’s porting request. DSL service will automatically be canceled on ported numbers. Do not port DLS service numbers unless you are changing your DSL service. A fee will apply in the event that you cancel RALLY’s Home Phone Service prior to activation but after requesting that RALLY port your current telephone number. See www.rally.ca/fees for details. 


(d) 911 Service. RALLY telephony utilizes Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology. 911 emergency service over a VoIP phone has certain limitations compared to Enhanced 911 services available on most traditional phones which you must be aware when ordering your telephone Service. 


(e) E911 vs VoIP 911. When placing a call to emergency services with E911 or Enhanced 911 the user’s telephone number and location are automatically transmitted to the operator during the call. With VoIP 911 the user’s telephone number and location are not automatically transmitted to the operator. 


(f) Routing of 911 Calls. When a caller dials 911 using the Customer’s service, the call is routed from the RALLY network to our emergency services operator. The operator will verbally confirm with the caller that they are either located at the emergency service address registered with RALLY, or if not, their present emergency service address. The operator will then determine the appropriate emergency agency and transfer the user’s call accordingly. There may be an additional delay to transfer the user’s emergency service call to areas not served by traditional 911. The Customer acknowledges and understands that RALLY cannot be held liable for service delays beyond its reasonable control. 


(g) 911 Dependency on AC Power and Broadband Internet. 911 dialing and RALLY’s Internet Service will not function during an electrical power or Internet outage, regardless of whether such outage is widespread or only affects your individual residence or unit. An AC power interruption or failure and/or interruption or failure of broadband Internet service may result in equipment needing attention by the Customer or RALLY prior to the service being available for calls including emergency calls. When the service is unavailable the Customer will need to access a traditional phone or cellular phone in order to make an emergency call. The Customer acknowledges and understands that in the event of an outage, malfunction or any other unavailability of their Internet connection or service-related equipment, including without limitation, improper modifications or tampering, the Service may not function and emergency calling may be unavailable. 


(h) Use of 911 Service Outside of your Service Address. RALLY’s 911 Service is designed to only work at your service address. The 911 Service will not function properly anywhere but at your service address. You shall not attempt to use the RALLY 911 service anywhere but at your service address. You should ensure that you have alternate means of accessing traditional 911 services when you are somewhere other than your service address. 


(i) Informing Others of the 911 Service Limitations. The Customer must inform users and potential users of the limitations of RALLY’s 911 service as compared with traditional 911 service, as set out above. If a user is not comfortable with the limitations of RALLY’s 911 Service the user should arrange an alternate means of accessing traditional 911 services. 


(j) 911 Service – Limitation of Liability. Neither RALLY, its affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, or agents may be held liable for (i) any claim, damage, or loss (including but not limited to profit loss), or (ii) any damage as a result of service outage, data loss. The Customer hereby waives any and all such claims or causes of action, arising from or relating to any service outage and/or inability to dial 911 from his Customer phone line or to access emergency service personnel unless it is proven that the act or omission proximately causing the claim, damage, or loss constitutes gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct on the part of RALLY. Subject to the provisions of this agreement, RALLY does not provide any other warranties of any kind either express or implied, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless RALLY, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, legal representatives and any other service provider that offers services to the Customer or RALLY in relation with the present agreement or the service provided, from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, legal fees and expenses) by, or on behalf of, the Customer, any third party or user of the Customers’ service relating to the absence, failure or outage of the service, including 911 dialling and/or inability of the Customer or any third party or user of their service to be able to dial 911 or to have access to emergency service personnel, as well as any misrouted 911 calls. 


26. Termination and Cancellation 

(a) Termination of Agreement by Customer. This Agreement may be terminated by you upon notice by e-mail or telephone call to the RALLY call centre followed by a mandatory phone call confirmation to verify the cancellation request, or by courier to RALLY. Cancellation of service requests must be communicated to RALLY in advance of the desired cancellation date and must specifically identify the services or features to be cancelled. Failure to do so may result in delays in processing of the cancellation. A cancellation fee applies to term Services. Any rental Equipment must be returned to RALLY within 30 days of termination in order not to be charged the full retail value of that Equipment, together with any costs we incur in seeking possession of it. RALLY does not provide prorated refunds. 


(b) Termination or Suspension by RALLY. RALLY may restrict, block, suspend or terminate all or any part of the Services immediately where you:
