The Cable Box Settlement as mentioned previously will differ per class member BUT class members can expect credits ranging between $50-$140 in value or a one-time bill credit (ranging between $20-$40) to Cablevision’s Current Subscribers. Former Subscribers can get a one-time cash payment (ranging between $20-$40) and other benefits. Please note class members are NOT required to show up at the bothersome fairness hearing in order to collect a settlement credit BUT can attend if desired by showing up at United States District Court for the District of New Jersey Courtroom 2A Martin Luther King Building & U.S. Courthouse 50 Walnut Street, Newark, NJ 07101 (if the class member would like to speak/make a statement they will have to notify the court ahead of time)… most class members should just take the credit and run.
