Comcast has sued DirecTV over what the cable giant claims are misleading ads for the satellite-TV company’s NFL Sunday Ticket package, reports the New York Post.
The ads tout DirecTV’s "free" NFL Sunday Ticket package, which Comcast alleges in its suit is an "outright lie," the story says. Comcast claims the NFL package costs hundreds of dollars per year after a free period, the article notes.
The cable company also claims the ads are hurting cable companies as customers switch to DirecTV.
"We think it’s deplorable that Comcast is trying to compete in the courtroom rather than in the marketplace," DirecTV said in a statement.
