Sky Deutschland has received a warning from the association for the protection of consumers in Bavaria over its hotline number, Teltarif.de reports. Customers who call the free-of-charge hotline number 0800 are redirected to the number with costs 01806 without notice. The consumer office in Bavaria considers the practice illegal. The district court Munich ruled that the paid number 01806 is in this form not permitted. The consumer association in Bavaria had used the ruling last year against Sky. Sky has filed an appeal against the decision.
