PORTLAND, Ore. (Legal Newsline) – A consumer claims he paid almost $100 to stream a boxing match and that the video quality was not what was advertised.
Zack Bartel filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others on Aug. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon against Showtime Networks Inc. alleging unlawful trade practices and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he paid $99.99 to stream in high definition the Mayweather v. McGregor fight on Aug. 26 on the defendant's Showtime PPV app. The suit states that the defendant's system was defective and he was unable to stream the fight in the quality advertised.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory, and punitive damages, interest all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Michael Fuller of Olsen Daines PC in Portland, Oregon.
