German broadcaster cleared of deception

German interactive quiz channel 9 Live has been cleared of misleading and deceiving its audiences. A consumers association had taken the channel to court amid complaints from the public that they had faced big phone bills following unsuccessful calls to join in one of 9 Lives games.

The consumers association couldn't back up its claims and lost its case in the Leipzig county court. Similar proceedings in Munich have now been dropped by prosecutors there.

9 Live or 'neun live' as it is also known, recently got into the Guinness Book of Records for being the longest running TV Quiz! report HERE
