Why does my invoice seem higher?
Can’t figure out why your monthly payment isn’t the same as usual? Here are some reasons why your invoice may have changed.
If this is your first invoice and you have chosen to pay for your equipment in a single payment, this payment is due on this first invoice.
Termination of promotions and discounts
If you were benefitting from a special offer or discount for a specific period and that period of time has ended, you will now be charged the current fees for your services. Special offer and discount details are listed on your Helix service agreement.

If you have made a change to your services, such as subscribing to more TV channels, your new monthly payment may be higher as this addition begins to be billed.
If you have used services such as Video On Demand or À la carte TV, you will be charged for each service.
If you have purchased new equipment, your next invoice will be higher since it includes the purchase costs, in one or more instalments.
