From BGR:

The FTC claims that between 2007 and 2015, DirecTV didn’t properly disclose the terms and conditions to 33 million customers who signed up for its satellite TV service.

Specifically, DirecTV advertised a discounted 12-month pay-TV plan, but the package actually required a two-year contract, with prices increasing by up to $45 per month in the second year. The early termination fee — $480! — and charges for premium channels were also not properly disclosed...

The amount of damages — and whether really small print counts as misleading advertising — is going to be front and center in this trial. If the FTC wins, it’s not just a big financial punishment; it’ll open the door to all manner of misleading ads and dubious charges becoming verboten.
