Some Direct TV customers could be getting some money back thanks to a $13 million settlement with the company.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and attorneys general across country sued Direct TV over the way its offers are marketed to consumers. The lawsuit claims the satellite provider did not accurately describe its promotional offers to people who sign up for their services. Some customers were overcharged for cancelling service.

Customers can contact Madigan's office to see if they're eligible for a refund.
