In yet another chapter of phone companies and MSOs suing each other over advertising claims, Verizon has filed a claim against Time Warner Cable (TWC)  over a series of advertisements that TWC has been running.

Verizon said the ads falsely suggest that subscribers need a satellite dish to get video from Verizon, and that TWC’s network is better. The company is suing for damages.

TWC says the claims are without merit.
