Spectrum deal deadline

(WIVB) – Spectrum customers who wish to take part in a settlement reached with New York State have until May 30 to call their hotline at 1-833-422-8795.

The $62.5 million settlement was reached in December 2018, and in March, the state Attorney General’s Office outlined what affected customers had to do to secure bill credits or free video streaming services.

Charter Spectrum settled the lawsuit without admitting they did anything illegal, but agreed to shell out $174 million, including $62.5 million worth of refunds, which the Attorney General’s office said amounted to the largest consumer payout by an Internet Service Provider in U.S. history.
