Comcast Sues DirecTV Over NFL Promotion

Cable TV giant Comcast Corporation is suing DirecTV over an NFL promotion. 

In a lawsuit filed this week, Comcast accuses DirecTV of false advertising, consumer fraud and unfair competition.  Comcast claims DirecTV fails to disclose a two-year contract requirement when advertising its NFL program package as “free.”  Meanwhile, a DirecTV spokesperson says Comcast’s claims are “completely without merit” and will be vigorously litigated.  Comcast wants the court to stop DirecTV’s marketing linked to the NFL promotion.  The cable giant, which owns NBCUniversal, is also seeking unspecified cash damages.
