An IL judge ordered DirecTV and its affils to stop airing in Comcast markets ads claiming superior picture quality over cable. The judge wrote that "Comcast is likely to succeed on the merits of its false advertising claims" and denied a similar DirecTV motion, allowing Comcast to keep running ads saying consumers prefer the MSO’s HD picture quality over DirecTV’s. "We are quite perplexed by the court’s conclusions," said a DirecTV spokesman. Comcast said the order "confirms, once again, that DirecTV’s claims are unsubstantiated and based on flawed and unreliable studies."
