    i am still a customer (not happy — but what choice do i have if i want cable; no competitors (yet?) and AT & T has stated they do not have plans now or in the future to accomodate the area i live in…)
    are these ‘set top boxes’ referred to the same as the cable box you have to rent to receive premium service?

    sure would be nice to see some money back from them. …seems like every time i open another bill there’s some new way they’ve figured to charge more fees/taxes/other charges that make no sense to me. I notice they keep changing the way they present their monthly bill/invoice so that by the time your sort-of get used to reading one they switch everything around to be confusing, again..

    I would like to know when; I would be receiving the 20 dollar check.

  10. LaTrisa Martin says:

    I had the subscriber for cable for 5 yr

  11. Tammie says:

    I have had Bright house all the way back from 2000, and I NEVER heard anything about this lawsuit. I think they should have mailed out information to all the subscribers. I’m now paying $140.00 for service I use to pay $109.00 for. Guess its time to change companies.

    Extremely disappointed – no check received but instead Brighthouse issues 6 months of EPIX for free beginning 6/1/2015. Pure junk channels and not worth a cent. This should be contested by the class action administrators.
