Those of you that follow my site on a regular basis know that I have been providing on-going coverage of customer complaints targeted at DirecTV. Now, after legal action filed in some form by Attorneys General in all 50 States, Direct TV has apparently agreed to a settlement and will be changing how it discloses its contract details to consumers. Initial reports vary on the actual dollar amount of the monetary portion of the settlement (see Reuters vs the LA Times).
For additional details on DirecTVs settlement with the States, read the official statement from DirecTV. Also, Consumer Watchdog.org has chimed in with an interesting follow-up statement, in which they have announced that they are continuing to pursue additional legal action to force further change in DirecTV's contract policies.
Also, check out my past coverage of this matter as it has lead up to this point. Watch for any further developments as they arise.
