Comcast’s attempt to stop an ad campaign by competitor DirecTV has been denied by a federal judge in Illinois, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.
As previously reported, Comcast sued DirecTV over what the cable giant claimed are misleading ads, alleging DirecTV’s claims of a "free" NFL Sunday Ticket package were an "outright lie."
DirecTV countered that the allegation "borders on absurd," since the actual phrase in the ads is "no extra charge," the story notes. A federal court agreed and has declined to halt the campaign.
