Section 14:18-3.8 - Method of billing
(a) Bills for cable television service shall be rendered monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually and shall be prorated upon establishment and termination of service. In unusual credit situations, bills may be rendered at shorter intervals.
(b) Cable television seasonal service may be billed in accordance with reasonable terms and conditions of service set forth in the filed schedule of prices, rates, terms and conditions.
(c) A cable television company may, under uniform nondiscriminatory terms and conditions, require payment, in advance, for a period not to exceed that for which bills are regularly rendered, as specified in its applicable filed schedule of prices, rates, terms and conditions. Any such advance payment for a greater period shall reflect appropriate discount for the additional period involved. Unless otherwise provided for in the applicable filed schedule of prices, rates, terms and conditions, initial and final bills shall be prorated as of the date of the initial establishment and final termination of service.
(d) If a cable television company electronically disconnects or otherwise curtails, interrupts or discontinues all or a portion of the customer's services for non-payment of a valid bill or for other reasons provided under 14:18-4.3, the cable television company shall prorate the charges for all affected services as of the date of the electronic service curtailment, interruption or disconnection.
