COMCAST, MASSACHUSETTS SETTLE
DIGITAL TV CASE
BOSTON | Comcast has settled allegations that the cable company did not accurately and fairly give Massachusetts customers information about the government-mandated digital television transition in February.
Attorney General Martha Coakley's office said Friday that under the agreement, Comcast will modify its Web site and future mailings and destroy its ''Get Ready'' mailings, which were the subject of the office's investigation.
Coakley said Comcast failed to tell customers about other digital television options and presented misleading price comparisons on its Web site. Comcast spokesman Marc Goodman said Comcast discussed changing the campaign with Coakley's office, as well as held town hall meetings and produced public service announcements to educate Massachusetts residents about the transition.
