I've been wondering for a long time whether or not this commercial by Time Warner - strongly emphasizing they offer free HD - would be considered false advertising.
In all of TWC's commercials, they strongly emphasize that they offer free on demand, and free HD programming (since its the one way they outshine their competitor). If you watch the commercial below, you will see what I mean by 'strongly emphasize'.
They also put a lot of emphasis on their on demand services being free as well.
Anyways, I've noticed that when I order movies on demand from them, there is a surcharge for ordering it in Hi-definition (as opposed to standard definition).
I noticed this about a year ago when I looked at my statement and saw:1/10: Ironman $4.00As an academic question, would you consider this false advertising? And if so, would it qualify as good class action lawsuit?
1/11: Ironman HD $5.00
"Fact: Time Warner HD is free."
