The Mexican operator Megacable sued the streaming service Chivas TV for the cancellation of 50,000 codes it had bought for its subscribers so that they could watch the final match of Liga MX that took place on Sunday May 28.
The company’s CEO, Enrique Yamuni, stated in an interview with Notimex that they have filed “several lawsuits” because the public image of Megacable has been damaged. The executive explained that 50,000 codes had already been paid and billed. However, because of the pressure exerted by Televisa, Chivas deactivated them, disregarding their contract.
Recently, Mexico’s Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco, by its initials in Spanish) requested Megacable to provide more information about the special offer that couldn’t be delivered. The operator’s Marketing Director, Gerardo Seifert, confirmed to El Universal that Profeco asked for this information to learn more about the terms of the agreement.
The special offer had been announced a couple of days before the final match of the MX League, in which Chivas played against Tigres. At that moment, Megacable offered MX$ 69 (USD 3,8) in compensation for those clients affected by the cancellation of the codes.
