Misleading Ads Cost DirecTV $5 Million


AdJab reports that DirecTV has recently agreed to pay $5 million to 22 states as restitution for misleading advertisements and practices.

Two years ago, these 22 states registered complaints against DirecTV, saying that some of the programming advertised by the company was not actually available in all areas, some local channels were not available, and reception was sometimes poor. In addition, the company was criticized for having an unfair cancellation policy. In addition to shelling out $5 million, DirecTV has agreed to be clearer about this stuff in the future.

Well I sure feel better now.
