— Some Time Warner Cable customers could be eligible for a month of free cable under a proposed class-action lawsuit settlement.

The cable company is being sued for allegedly selling subscribers' personal information for marketing purposes.

Those eligible are Hillsborough customers who had subscribed to the service anytime from Jan. 1, 1993, to Dec. 31, 1998.

The settlement must still be approved by a U.S. District Court judge. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Dec. 9.

To be eligible, customers must fill out a claim form no later than March 10, 2009.
