Two men who hacked into Comcast Corp.’s website have been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Twenty-year-old Christopher Lewis of Newark, Del., and 28-year-old Michael Nebel of Kalamazoo, Mich., were sentenced Friday in federal court in Philadelphia. Both had pleaded guilty to conspiring to disrupt service at http://www.comcast.net .
