Comcast accused of enrolling customers in programs without consent

[Washington] state’s Attorney General has filed an amended complaint alleging that Comcast subscribed more than half of its Service Protection Plan customers without consent since the option was first available in 2011. It frequently enrolled customers without even mentioning the plan, according to the lawsuit, but the worst was when it did — employees reportedly claimed the $6 monthly service was free, and would even sign people up after they’d explicitly refused it. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
