Investigation and pending class action against DirecTV and Best Buy, alleging that the companies fail to adequately disclose that a purchase of a DirecTV satellite receiver is considered by DirecTV to be a 'lease', for which it charges consumers monthly lease fees. Our action is on behalf of consumers nationwide, further alleging that consumers instead believe that they own the receivers they purchase from DirecTV or its retailers, like Best Buy, and only later discover that they must pay lease fees, and return their receivers if they cancel their DirecTV subscription.
