It’s Official: FCC OK’s Comcast-NBC Merger

Once again, from the Washington Post:

The Federal Communications Commission has approved Comcast’s acquisition of NBC Universal, allowing for a joint venture that puts a vast library of television shows and movies under the control of the nation’s biggest cable and broadband Internet service provider.


Together, the companies have 16.7 million broadband subscribers, about 23 million cable customer and dozens of lucrative channels such as USA, Bravo, MSNBC and CNBC.


In a 4-to-1 vote, the FCC determined the deal was in the nation’s public interest and assigned a number of conditions to the venture to ensure that Comcast shares content with cable competitors and gives other networks fair access to its customers.

    What’s interesting now is how much of a run NBC/VS will make at yanking properties away from ABC/ESPN.

    This will be good. Not too happy with ATT
