Some good news for Spectrum users as the New York Attorney General's office has announced a settlement that has been reached that will grant Spectrum customers free HBO or Showtime.  But how do you know if you're eligible to reap the rewards of the settlement?

According to the Times Union, the settlement will force Charter Communications to pay out parts of over $714 million dollars to customers due to internet speeds that weren't as fast as the company was claiming.

According to the report, Charter will provide $62.5 million in direct refunds to 700,000 Spectrum internet customers.  Some of that will come in the form of $75 or $150 (depending on how long the client received sub-par service) and Charter will either dole out 'three months of HBO or six months of Showtime free to Spectrum customers who get both TV and internet and do not currently get both premium channels' according to the Times Union.

But are you eligible? If so, you will be contacted, there's nothing you can do at this time.
