Fans had many difficulties attempting to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. face off against Conor McGregor over the weekend. After many streaming services failed to provided the pay-per-view in a timely fashion, it would appear that Showtime is being hit with a hefty lawsuit.
As reported by Hollywood reporter, Zack Bartel is forming a lawsuit against the company.
As noted by Hollywood Reporter,
“Instead of being upfront with consumers about its new, untested, underpowered service, defendant caused likelihood of confusion and misunderstanding as to the source and quality of the HD video consumers would see on fight night,” writes attorney Michael Fuller in the complaint filed late Saturday in Oregon federal court. “Defendant intentionally misrepresented the quality and grade of video consumers would see using its app, and knowingly failed to disclose that its system was defective with respect to the amount of bandwidth available, and that defendant’s service would materially fail to conform to the quality of HD video defendant promised.”
